This book is the first to make the case that women's changing role in European and American society was critical to Dada. Debates about birth control and suffrage, a declining male population and expanding female workforce, the emergence of the New Woman, and Freudianism were among the forces that contributed to the dadaist enterprise.Among the female dadaists discussed are the German AcmigrAc Baroness Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven; Berlin dadaist Hannah HApch; expatriate poet and artist Mina Loy; the qQueen of Greenwich Village, q Clara Tice; Margaret Anderson and Jane Heap, the lesbian couple who ran the Little Review; and Beatrice Wood, who died in 1998 at the age of 105. The book also addresses issues of colonialist racism, cross-dressing and dandyism, and the gendering of the machine.This book is the first to make the case that womena#39;s changing role in European and American society was critical to Dada.
