In the New York Times article, Chicago talks about The Dinner Party:

“‘It’s important to understand that this didn’t just happen,’ she said, dressed in jeans and black sneakers on a trip to New York from her New Mexico home. ‘It’s also important to understand that resistance can be overcome. One of the reasons I was able to stand up to it was because I knew my history. I knew what the women on the table had been through.’

The Dinner Party‘s work isn’t done yet,’ she added.”
