In 2022, for the first time in Dutch history, there were as many female ministers as male ministers. A historical highlight. Unfortunately, women’s emancipation in politics does not end here. We still have a long way to go to really achieve gender equality in Dutch politics.
Why do we see so few female artists in museums? Despite social and institutional barriers, there have definitely been women who were successful in the art world. It’s time to shed more light on these women and to do justice to this often neglected part of (art) history.
