2018 will DEFINITELY be the Year of the Woman!
No one could have guessed that this past year would introduce the world to the #MeToo movement. Women are feeling even more motivated to have their voices be heard and to see real change in their everyday life.
Nasty Women is a global art movement that serves to demonstrate solidarity among artists who identify with being a Nasty Woman in the face of threats to roll back women’s rights, individual rights, and abortion rights, according to nastywomen.org. It was started in January 2017 by Roxanne Jackson and Jessamyn Fiore with a NYC show. That show inspired hundreds of sister shows, of which Nasty Women Evanston is one. Our first exhibition in June 2017 raised over $10,000 for Planned Parenthood, exceeding our expectations.
This year, the Year of the Woman, we expect to see even more momentum. It’s becoming clear what women can accomplish when they stand together. Our work is far from over but our future has never been brighter.
