women's day

"The portrayal of women as muses was a familiar surrealist theme. Believing that women had a
closer connection to the desired irrationality of dreams than men, they pictured them as alluring sorceresses,
child-women, and quasi-magical beings.....This way of presenting women was intended to elevate rather than
diminish the female sex, but ran the risk of seeming to cast women as a passive foil to male creativity,
without a voice of their own. "
