Quote:
"While [Janis] Cole and [Holly] Dale have recently described themselves as feminist, and while their work often deals with women, it by no means limits itself to gender issues, women's lives, or feminist themes. Casting a wide net predominantly outside the middle-class mainstream, their body of work is marked most urgently by its attention to marginalized registers of society and predominantly to resisters of social injustice."
