Judy Chicago On Feminism, Art And Education

Artist Judy Chicago pioneered the concept of "feminist art" in the '70s, pushing back in a male-dominated art world. Her best known work, "The Dinner Party," explored women in history and myth, an iconic installation that continues to inspire today. As Chicago's 75th birthday approaches, a trio of nationwide exhibitions and events celebrate her contributions to both fields. We talk with her about what's changed and what hasn't for female artists.
