The readings also reminded me of Charles and Ray Eames: The Architect and the Painter, a film available on Netflix streaming. Ray and Charles Eames were a design team. As the film shows, Ray was marginalized in the media as an assistant to Charles, when she was more of a design partner. This could have been due to the fact that she had lady parts. It could have been due her expertise in painting contrasted to the hard (harder?) science of architecture. The title of the movie itself shows bias, or at least continues the marginalization of women and painters: Ray is listed second to Charles. How would people react if the title was Ray and Charles Eames: The Painter and the Architect?
