British-born art historian Ann Sutherland Harris, assistant professor at Hunter College and president of the Women’s Caucus for Art, lectured on "The Image of Women in Art."

In 1972, Harris and Vassar art historian Linda Nochlin ’51 were commissioned by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art to mount a show of significant women artists.  The result—an exhibition, “Women Artists, 1550-1950” (1975) and a book, Women Artists, 1550-1950 (1976)—was called by the online Dictionary of Art Historians “the cornerstone for feminist research in art history.”
