About us

We are a publication dedicated to reshaping society’s ideas of “women’s things” within arts and culture. At present, gender and racial parity have not been reached when it comes to publishing, museum acquisitions, gallery showings, and film and theater works. We want to change that trajectory and tell the stories of women that never get told. We are finding and highlighting the women who have influenced our present and women who are making history today. Join us!
