Why There Were Relatively Few Eminent Women Creators.
Ochse, Rhona
Journal of Creative Behavior, v25 n4 p334-43 1991
This paper examines reasons for the relatively few eminent women creators and considers values relating to intellectual achievement, precocious development of skill, and creators' tendency to work alone. The paper concludes that women's strong need for social intimacy is an impediment to their creativity, as it pulls them away from a strong motivation to create. (JDD)
