Women who make history - Artists

1 min read

In celebration of Women’s History Month, we’re featuring 6 amazing women each week. These women are trailblazers, activists, adventurers, advocates for love, defenders of the environment and nature, and warriors for equal rights. While we’ve split them up into 5 different categories, they blur the lines and cross boundaries in their accomplishments.

This is in no way an exhaustive list as we could list thousands. But a mere dusting of the surface in appreciation of the many women throughout history and current day who have made a difference in our world.

6 artists, inspring women who make history

These women inspire, entertain, and educate through art, often becoming activists for change through their chosen art form.

Yayoi Kusama - the queen of polka dots! Japanese artist who crosses media boundaries

Thank you ladies for making the world a better place!
