Artemesia Gentileschi, born 1593 in Italy, had the rare opportunity to study art and follow in the footsteps of her father, the painter Orazio Gentileschi. Raped by her teacher and having faced a humiliating public trial, she was quickly married off to a fellow painter and moved out of town. Unlike many women who were publicly shamed by rape, Artemesia sought out patrons, pursued her fame as a painter, and used her femininity to her professional advantage.
