Natividad Navalón Blesa, Alejandro Mañas García, Teresa Cháfer Bixquert

Abstract: This is the second article of a whole series of reflections in which our main objective is to recover the space that the women should never have lost. In them we review those heroines, combatants in a misogynistic society, who have been influential thinkers in the creative work developed by contemporary women artists. This article is centered on the figure of Hildegard von Bingen, a versatile and visionary nun, who left her legacy in different disciplines such as writing, painting, music, science, among others. A heroine, in which many artists have set their sights as a benchmark for empowerment and have directed their artistic work towards mysticism, generating a connection between art and spirituality. We collect a selection of artists who have used mysticism, silence and visions in their creative process to give voice to a gender problem in this society and to work in the fight for the recovery of a space that should always have belonged to the woman. Artists who, through their work, claim a place in a phallocentric society. Hildegard is a clear example of what we call female heroines in a misogynistic society.
