Women have long used artistic expression as a method of liberation and feminist activism. From Renaissance painters and poets to today’s critics, actors, playwrights, musicians and filmmakers, art provides an important outlet for women’s creativity and resistance to the status quo. Women are present in growing numbers across genres of music, literature, and visual and performing arts, and they are breaking new ground at all levels of production, performance and industry management. Arts institutions, museums and galleries are displaying feminist work and promoting more female artists. Feminist organizations such as Guerrilla Girls are spurring collectors, curators, historians and institutions to recognize women artists and provide equal access and opportunities for success.
