For centuries, women had been excluded from the history of art. Women had been struggling for equality since long years before and until now is still happening in the art world. Although, women had been involved in art making whether as creators, writers, poet, thinkers, innovators of any new artistic form of expressions, women are still underrated and underrepresented in galleries and museums.
As an artist, I am always confused about the weak representation of women. Feminist art is for addressing the issues of social injustices, violence against women and children, poverty, misogyny and many other forms of oppression. Women seek justice to end inequality. Feminist art depicts the struggle of women from everyday to promote awareness and change.
As an artist I think one of the best weapon against patriarch is art, by creating art from our experiences and imagination, art is one powerful tool to resist patriarchy.
In an end, I would like to share some photos of my artworks, and please let me know your comment and reactions about it. These are art that is made by women to support and empower more women.
A shout for equality in celebration of #IWD2019
