Badass Women 2021 Calendar
The fifth Badass Women Calendar features such badasses as:
Thank you for supporting the Badass Women Project! With your help, in 2020
we raised $6000 for
the Black Feminist Project
Wow y'all, my heart really went into this one. There really is nothing like creating a Badass Women Calendar in isolation during a pandemic while the world is on fire.
This is the 5th calendar in the series, and in the past I've sold it in small businesses across the US, at art markets and craft fairs during the holiday season, and of course online orders, shipping with USPS. Every one of those methods has been affected by Covid-19 this year, and I am printing fewer calendars in anticipation of lower sales.
As usual, we don't know what the future holds. I hope that this calendar will bring you some hope each month, remembering that there are so many badasses in the world doing work that brings us closer to a world that is just for all humans.
I'm proud of this project-- it's truly inspiring, and I am beyond grateful
for your support.
A note from the artist:
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.
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, and as someone who is committed to doing the work of challenging racism, 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 women of color in the United States.
I'm pleased to announce that this year, a portion of proceeds from the project supports The Black Feminist Project,
an organization that enriches the lives of, restores agency, justice, joy, and health
to Black women, girls, and non-men, often referred to as marginalized genders or MaGes
and the children they care for - with an emphasis on mother-led families.
Please check out their website to find out more!
I'm also working on providing resources here on my website to further dialogue and action to advocate for racial and gender equality. Thanks so much for your support.
