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 will support Women With A Vision, Inc.,
an organization that does incredible work to improve the lives of
marginalized women, their families, and communities by addressing the social
conditions that hinder their health and well-being.
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.
