Visual art operates in a unique realm of expression - providing the artists with the ability not only show us who we were but also who we are. As such art becomes a tool that can be used to address issues at the forefront of society. Women as artists have come together across the globe to speak up and use their voices to influence and demand real change. In our current social and political climate what does this look like for female artists?
