Art, Gender, and Social Justice

Artists provoke and enlighten by giving voice to perspectives in our world that might otherwise remain unseen. Artistic investigations of contemporary attitudes and norms have been embedded in the forefront of movements for social justice, civil rights, and equity for marginalized voices throughout history. What roles do art and gender play in creating social justice locally and globally? What can we do to bring more marginalized women’s voices to the forefront where they can speak for themselves?
