Abstract:

Gender discrimination and subjugation of women is prevalent in some form or other whenever and wherever a society is characterized by patriarchy. It can be found in various areas and fields including the world of art. My study aimed to create the awareness regarding gender discrimination and subjugation as a universally prevalent phenomenon in the world of art throughout history. It attempted to highlight especially the contributions of women artists and shed light on the external limitations they faced throughout history from a gendered point of view. Among the various discourses surrounding gender issues, this study is another attempt to highlight gender discrimination and subjugation as a deep-rooted aspect of patriarchy. This study focuses on Taiwan, a country known for its rich history and artistic brilliance. I wanted to conduct a thorough historical study of women artists in Taiwan, explore their works and contributions as well as the constraints they faced in their pursuit of a career in art, through historical research method. The objectives of my study are: a. to study the history of women artists in Taiwan; b. to highlight their contribution in the world of art and c. to find out the challenges they faced because of their sex and to ascertain the reasons behind their secondary status in comparison to male artists.
