    One of the most common pieces that are talked about today is, “The Dinner Party.” This was one of her most famous works because it was during the time of the women’s movement. Judy was helped by more than 400 women between the years 1974 through 1979. The Dinner Party reflects Chicago’s shift from a marker or abstract Minimalist objects and paintings to works on feminist themes in alternative media and installations (Janson’s 621). The artwork pays homage to the woman who Judy felt were ignored, underrated, or taken out of historical documents. The dinner party was designed in a triangular table.

    Regardless of whether a rival or supporter of Judy Chicago's The Dinner Party, there is no precluding the chronicled significance from claiming the piece. Despite the fact that its creation was just somewhere in the range of 30 years back, it is as of now observed as a women's activist symbol in western culture. The verifiable significance, to ladies and western culture, is immaterial. The Dinner party is a great establishment celebrating overlooked accomplishments in female history. Chicago…
