For the past seven years, the author has been researching the representations of women who were engaged in a range of espionage activities during World War II. It seems much of people's knowledge about women spies is formed by popular representations, which are often, and intriguingly, full of stereotypes and half-truths. The skilled and heroic contributions by "ordinary" women pales in comparison to the myths surrounding the more notorious women. In this article, the author discusses how women spies are represented in art. (Contains 6 footnotes.)
