The Badass Women Project aims to inspire all kinds of humans by celebrating badass women-- particularly to lift up women of color,
queer women, and individuals or groups that have not traditionally been recognized for their badassery-- because feminism is necessarily intersectional.
The project began shortly after the U.S. Presidential election in 2016 as a collection of portraits representing Badass Women whose actions have advanced equality in the world we know.
The project continues to grow.

A NOTE FROM THE ARTIST:
ADDRESSING RACIAL JUSTICE
I am honored and humbled by the success of the Badass Women Project--
and I am ecstatic that so many people are excited to buy a calendar featuring mostly women of color.
As an artist and businesswoman who identifies as white, I want to acknowledge my privilege, and engage in a conversation about how I can address racial justice through my small business.
Because the project has been such a success, one of my first goals is to give a significant financial donation from the proceeds to an organization that is working to dismantle racism and supports people of color in the United States.
Each year I donate part of the calendar proceeds to a different organization. In the past the project has supported Black Women's Blueprint, Women With A Vision, and The Black Feminist Project. If you have recommendations for badass organizations that are working to smash racism as well as the patriarchy, please reach out:
I'm also working on providing resources here on my website to further dialogue and action to advocate for racial and gender equality. Again, please be in touch.
