Take the #5WomenArtists Challenge: Fight for Equality for Women Artists!
Can you name five women artists? Sign PetitionSign Petition
Ask someone to name five artists and responses will likely include names such as Warhol, Picasso, van Gogh, Monet, da Vinci—all male artists. Ask someone to name five women artists, and the question poses more of a challenge.
The question isn't just meant to make you feel guilty—it highlights a genuine and alarming imbalance in the art world and art museums everywhere.
Around the world, male artists fill museums, art galleries, and text books, while women artists are relegated to footnotes or left out of the conversation entirely.
It doesn't have to be that way. We can't let it be that way any longer.
By taking the #5womenartists challenge, you can help finally bring women artists to the forefront and inspire conversations with your network about the inequity women artists face.
Take action! Add your name today to raise awareness of the gender imbalance in the art world, then share with your friends to challenge them to name #5womenartists.
