As long as it's pink : the sexual politics of taste by Penny Sparke( Book )

As Long as It's Pink argues that 'taste' has been a quality assigned to women while 'design' is a man-made construction which has taken aesthetic authority away from women. This in turn has succeeded in trivializing and marginalizing women's material culture. Ranging across histories of domesticity, feminine consumption and home-making, as well as modern design and broader cultural theories, Penny Sparke offers a completely new version of the history of our modern material culture

"The variety of case studies looking at women as producers, clients, consumers and theorists examines: Princess Louise, Kate Greenaway, the Hall sisters, Josephine Baker, Elsie de Wolfe, Eileen Gray, Elizabeth Denby, Dora Gordine and Marie Dormoy."
