If any link existed between Czech women artists of this period and Western feminism it was a latent one. What was the relationship between the gender-sensitive works of women artists and the contemporaneous local and Western feminist ideas? And yet, the new generation of Czech artists who entered the scene during the first half of the s included an unprecedented number of women that were interested in gender issues, mainly with regard to body politics and sexuality.
