Red Flag was the first print edition which the artist signed "Judy Chicago." Claiming her own identity, Judy Gerowitz (born 1939) announced that she was changing her married surname in Artforum in October 1970. A controversial image, Red Flag is considered to be the first direct depiction of menstruation in western art.
