Nina Isabelle says:  I am a feminist artist because I'm stubborn, clever, nurturing and resilient.



Feminism is a range of political movements, ideologies, and social movements that share a common goal: to define, establish, and achieve political, economic, personal, and social equality of sexes. This includes seeking to establish educational and professional opportunities for women that are equal to such opportunities for men.

Valerie Sharp says:  I am a feminist artist because I recognize my inner power and know I can create change.

Feminist movements have campaigned and continue to campaign for women's rights, including the right to vote, to hold public office, to work, to earn fair wages or equal pay, to own property, to receive education, to enter contracts, to have equal rights within marriage, and to have maternity leave. Feminists have also worked to promote bodily autonomy and integrity, and to protect women and girls from rape, sexual harassment, and domestic violence.

Jennifer Zackin says:  I am a feminist artist because  I am home.

Changes in dress and acceptable physical activity have often been part of feminist movements.

Elizabeth Lamb says: I am a feminist artist because I work to look carefully and listen deeply.

Feminist campaigns are generally considered to be a main force behind major historical societal changes for women's rights, particularly in the West, where they are near-universally credited with achieving women's suffrage, gender neutrality in English, reproductive rights for women (including access to contraceptives and abortion), and the right to enter into contracts and own property

Jodie Lynn-Kee Chow says: I am a feminist artist because I believe that women artists should have equal rights in society, equal opportunities, and equal if not more pay than men.

Although feminist advocacy is, and has been, mainly focused on women's rights, some feminists, including bell hooks, argue for the inclusion of men's liberation within its aims because men are also harmed by traditional gender roles.

IV Castellanos says: I am a feminist artist because I wanted to breathe the same air as everyone else...equally, whole, complete and within sameness for all people.

Feminist theory, which emerged from feminist movements, aims to understand the nature of gender inequality by examining women's social roles and lived experience; it has developed theories in a variety of disciplines in order to respond to issues concerning gender.
Numerous feminist movements and ideologies have developed over the years and represent different viewpoints and aims. Some forms of feminism have been criticized for taking into account only white, middle class, and college-educated perspectives. This criticism led to the creation of ethnically specific or multicultural forms of feminism, including black feminism and intersectional feminism.

Linda Mary Montano says: I am not sure I am a feminist artist or even a female artist!  I just do what I have to do so that I can survive day to day. I call what I do art but I hope that what I do heals me and looks natural, and is so disguised  that it looks like life itself.  I am nothing.
