Women Who Kick Ass

Hannah Höch (November 1, 1889 – May 31, 1978)
Why She Kicks Ass:
German Dada artist, and one of the pioneers of photomontage.
Made strong feminist connections in her work, including criticizing gender roles, the treatment of women in the institution of marriage, and the beauty industry. From Wikipedia:  ”Marriage did not escape her criticism—she depicted brides as mannequins and children, reflecting the idea that women are not seen as complete people and have little control over their lives. Höch saw herself as part of the women’s movement in the 1920s, as shown in her depiction of herself in Schnitt mit dem Küchenmesser DADA durch die letzte weimarer Bierbauchkulturepoche Deutschlands (1919–20). Her pieces also commonly combine male and female into one being.”
Also fought for equality in sexual and gender identity through her work (Höch identified as bisexual), and argued against racial discrimination.
