Transcript BROADSIDE HOUSTON AREA NOW BROADSIDE--V0I. 11, No. 3 MARCH, 1980 THE DINNER PARTY Houston Area NOW Sponsors Plate In December, Houston Area NOW voted to sponsor the Sojourner Truth plate of Judy Chicago's THE DINNER PARTY. Chicago's multi-media work of art consists of a triangular table, 48 feet long on each side, with 39 outsize place settings, each honoring a woman from legend or history of Western civilization; the table rests on a floor of pearlized tiles, bearing the names of 999 additional women whose achievements enriched human life. THE DINNER PARTY grew out of Chicago's research into women's history in the 1960's; she realized how greatly women have contributed throughout history, and the extent to which women's contributions, lives, and legacies have been not merely ignored, but actively suppressed. The history books we grew up with would lead us to believe that women have only existed for perhaps a few thousands years [how often do we hear of Neanderthal women?], and even then, remained conspicuously absent when the events which we consider to be noteworthy took place. Where were the women? Perhaps they were all living underground, in a movement we've long since forgotten--in a time when all women, definers of their own fate, conspired to hide and not take part in the events shaping men's history, until... But that's fantasy. In fact, women were there all the time, at least as many women as men; the truth is, we have been cheated out of the stories of the travails, the strengths, the victories and defeats which have been the substance of the lives of our mothers. Judy Chicago wished to express her anger at being deprived of her heritage, and at the same time, she wanted to share what she had discovered to be the rich heritage of women with as many people as possible. Men have the Last Supper; thanks to Judy Chicago, women have THE DINNER PARTY. Prepare yourself for a religious experience.
