This Women's History Month, we'll be showcasing our artists—historical and contemporary—who identify as women. Here are some subversive, inspiring, and downright cheeky words from four of our favorites from history—Dorothea Lange, Berenice Abbott, Hilma af Klint and Florine Stettheimer.  Image of I Am an American, Oakland, CA, March 1942 1 1: il s 1AM AN AMERICAN RSN E LS I Am an American, Oakland, CA, March 1942 Image of Toward Los Angeles, California Toward Los Angeles, California “Bad as it is, the world is potentially full of good photographs.

Women did not wear slacks then; they wore skirts. When I photographed New York, I put on ski pants. Truck drivers yelled at me, 'Lady, take that off.' It bothered me, it even bothered me when people gathered around as I was setting up my camera in the street. But I found in New York the best way is to ignore them, as if they weren't there."
