Willa Muir


Muir's Hogarth Essay attempts to address the question of whether "the division of the human race into men and women involves a division of spiritual as well as of sexual functions, so that the creative work of women is different in kind from the creative work of men." Muir discusses several current understandings of the relationship between gender, morality, and creativity and attempts to propose that women develop their own self-conscious method of producing art that better reflects their gendered worldview.
