Throughout the class we have learned MANY ways of feminist expression. A key element in expressing yourself is through art. My favorite feminist artist, georgia o'keefe...
Georgia O'Keefe was born on 1887 and she died on 1986. She grew up in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin. She spent a few years working as a commercial artist in Chicago. Then she went to Texas to teach art. She married Alfred Stieglitg a famous photographer. He saw how talented she was and gave Georgia her first exhibition. O'Keefe paintings are realistic and abstract at the same time. She painted images of flowers, mountains, and skyscrapers. By the time she died in 1986 at the age of 99, she was recognized as the greatest American woman artist of the century. Then she moved to Mexico to paint her paintings.
Below are some examples of her work:

Introduced in the United States in 1982, liposuction popularity increased as refinements to the technique improved results and reduced recovery times. Thirty-eight percent more women had liposuction in 2009 than in 1997.
