WomenArts is founded on the belief that women artists have the power to change the way women are perceived in our society. We want to make sure that artists have full access to the financial and other resources they need to do this crucial work. We focus mainly on women in theatre, film, and video, and we have two main goals: To Challenge Stereotypes – We challenge gender and other stereotypes by supporting the creation and appreciation of art that reflects the full diversity and complexity of women’s lives. To Increase Opportunities – We advocate for women artists to be paid fairly and to have more opportunities to make a living from their creative work.
