In the Observer magazine on Saturday Jonathan Glancey wrote an article about Bauhaus art school. The school opened in 1919 and both women and men were free to join classes. Even though the intention of the school was equality between the sexes that was never really the case.

Even though many of the female students were forgotten about Ulrike Muller has written a book called Bauhaus Women which is about the all the talented women who thrived at Bauhaus art school.
