NMWA advocates for women artists—and you can, too.

Art is a reflection of society. If the artistic landscape neglects women, what does that say about society as a whole?

For centuries, social conventions limited the training available to women artists, the subjects they could render, and the ways they could market art to patrons.

Gender bias is less obvious today, but contemporary women artists still face obstacles and disparities. Their historical precursors still deserve to have their stories told.
