  1. I wondered the same thing myself. After wandering around a bit, I found the:

    – Research Help page, which explains a bit more about the site, and states that the
    – Bibliography page lists all of the sources used for the site, as well as providing great books for
    further reading. And, finally, the
    – Resources and Other Web Sites page may be of help too.

    All pages are accessible from the main page in alphabetical order.

    To the web goddess (god?) who produced the site – what a wonderful site! Thank you!


  2. I found this site very helpful in answering some difficult questions about women and the role that they played in Ancient Greek theatre. However, I cannot use any of it because though I personally find the answers here to be both plausible and having evidentiary support, there is not enough information in order for me to properly cite it. Whoever created this site, please upload some basic information so that others may utilize your work for our own research but give YOU the credit. Thank You.

  3. Women played major roles in innovative artistic movements, such as abstraction, expressionism, and minimalism. But, as in the case of Abstract Expressionism, they were still often overshadowed by their male peers who typically received more critical and commercial attention.
