Note: Dr. Gail Levin, author of Becoming Judy Chicago: A Biography of the Artist (2007), has correctly pointed out that in our discussion of Chicago’s Dinner Party we “misidentifie[d] the plate to the left of Sojourner Truth, reading the name “Mary Shelley” off of the floor. In fact, the plate represents Mary Shelley’s mother, Mary Wollstonecraft, author of ‘A Vindication of the Rights of Woman’ (1792). Mary Shelley was the author of Frankenstein (1818). None of the names on the tile floor duplicate the names of the women who are represented by the 39 plates on the table.”
