This book focuses on the accomplishments of a new generation of women artists who have benefited from the ground-breaking efforts of their predecessors. Focusing on 24 of the most acclaimed international women artists born since 1960, the book is organised in four thematic sections. 'Bad Girls' profiles artists whose work represents an assault on conventional notions of gender and racial difference. 'History Lessons' offers reflections on the self in the context of history and globalisation. 'Spellbound' focuses on women's embrace of the irrational, the subjective, and the surreal, while 'Domestic Disturbances' takes on women's conflicted relationship to home, family, and security.

The book also examines how the institutions of the art world have changed, and how those changes affect the women artists of today. Written in lively prose and fully illustrated throughout, this book gives a uniquely informed account of the diversity of recent contemporary art by women.
