Sue Tate has worked in museum education and then, as a feminist art historian, has taught ‘Visual Culture’ to art students, latterly at the University of the West of England. Active in I.S. in the 1970s her political involvement since then has been in the feminist movement – a key player in producing a feminist magazine Just Women based in Taunton; then in the Fawcett Society and the Bristol Feminist Network. Her academic work and publishing has been committed to understanding the power structures of the art world and to reinstating women artists in the narrative of art history (notably Pauline Boty, British Pop Artist). She is currently a Trustee of the Feminist Archive South and was the main curator and organiser of the Politics and Protest exhibition, created a part of a £50,000 grant from the Government Equalities Office.
