“Global Feminisms” is short on heroes, but another example is New Zealander Lisa Reihana’s 2001 photo Mahuika, which finds inspiration in a fire goddess from the artist’s Maori culture. Reihana turns Mahuika into a tough old lady in a scaly red and black skirt that glows like lava. She sits coolly before an ominous sky and brandishes her red fingernails. Burn, baby, burn!
