There are so many badass women!

One of the goals of this project is to particularly lift up badass women of color and queer women who have not traditionally been recognized for their badassery-- or who have been marginalized specifically because they are women of color.

The artist is always open to recommendations for badasses to feature in this curated project, keeping the above goal in mind.
