for most of history, "anonymous" was a woman.

— Virigina Woolf

How many male artists can you name off the top of your head? Can you name the same amount of female artists? If you've had the pleasure of taking a "Women in the Arts" course or something along those lines, you might be able to, but for most of us, we know of far more male artists and designers than women in those same fields.

Fortunately, in the age of the internet, it’s easier than ever to find and follow women artists creatives.

With a simple Google search, we can uncover thousands of women working in every creative field at various different professional levels. Some worked decades or centuries ago and paved the way for the women working in those fields now, and others are making changes for future generations.

This website is just a small sample size of all the achievements and changes that women creatives have made in their fields, many of them severely underappreciated.
