“How To Be A Feminist Artist And Still Make A Profit” is a blog outlining ways that artists can be more feminist friendly and still make a profit.

This blog is intended to be a resource for artists and art enthusiasts alike. It is also intended to help you:

– become a more socially conscious artist

– better understand the issues in art today, especially those issues that are most often misrepresented in the media

– learn how to use your voice as an artist to spread awareness of issues you want to bring attention to

– learn how not to alienate potential patrons or customers with your artwork and/or promotional materials (and why this matters)

– support other artists by helping them to become more feminist-friendly through constructive advice and suggestions aimed at helping them find more success in their art careers (while also becoming more feminist-friendly themselves)

The intent of this blog is not to shame or belittle anyone, but rather to help create a community of likeminded individuals who wish to work together towards the common goal of creating art that is more accessible, inclusive and progressive.”

If you are an artist, or you run a business that sells art, you probably want to be more feminist friendly. Maybe you’re not sure how. You’re busy, and this is hard stuff! But making your work more feminist friendly can be good for your bottom line. And it’s not as hard as it may seem.

Treating women with respect will also help keep your artists and employees happy, which is good for morale, and can make them even better at their jobs. And being more feminist friendly will also attract more female customers and clients, which can help your bottom line.

So here are some steps you can take toward reaching these goals:

*What we say:

Be aware of what your company says about women, both on its web site and in its marketing materials. Make sure that the facts are correct (for example, there will often be a picture of just one woman on the “team” page, which is misleading if all the people in the picture are actually clients). If there are any errors, fix them immediately.

If you post links to outside sites in marketing materials for products that are targeted primarily at men, make sure that those sites treat women correctly. (This is not a problem for books such as most fiction or

I am a Filmmaker, but I am also a feminist. As I’ve learned more about feminism, I’ve come to identify more and more as an intersectional feminist. Intersectional feminism is a term used to describe the idea that different forms of oppression are linked and that all women experience sexism differently based on their race, class, sexuality, and other differences.

There are many facets of intersectionality in the film industry such as: racism, ageism, sexism, homophobia, ableism, sizeism and even classism. In my opinion we need to work together to make the industry as safe and inclusive for everyone as possible.

Here are some concrete examples of how you can be a feminist and make your art/film business more inclusive.

It is easier than ever to make art, but it is harder than ever to make a living doing so. In the face of this problem, artists often go one of two routes: they either become more conservative or they become more radical. Conservative artists decide that they just want to be successful within the current system and so they set about making work that is marketable. Radical artists, on the other hand, decide that the system needs changing and so they set about making work that challenges the current system.

Trouble is, being a radical artist can be really hard. Anything you make will inevitably fail in some way or another. And if you’re trying to change how people think and see the world, there will always be people who don’t agree with your point of view or who are threatened by your work. It’s a lot safer to stick with safe topics that everyone likes and to stay within your own little bubble of like-minded people (read: wealthy white men).

However, if you do decide to take on a controversial topic or tackle an entrenched idea, there are things you can do to prepare yourself for the inevitable backlash.

In a climate where female artists are often overlooked, we’re starting to see more and more of a trend towards female-centric art shows. This is in no small part due to the popularity of feminism—and the fact that many female artists have taken up the task of exploring feminist themes through their work.

In fact, one could argue that feminism is in many ways inspiring art as much as art is inspiring feminism. Here are five examples for you to consider:

1.) The Art of Feminist Protest

We’ve seen it in the marches, on Facebook and now, even on walls (literally). People are becoming more and more active –– and taking their activism straight to the gallery. This can be as simple as creating a show of protest art or raising money for an important cause. Whatever you decide to do, embrace the idea that art can be used in a variety of ways to inspire social change.

2.) The Art of Self-Reflection

Some artists are taking inspiration from their own lives and turning their everyday experiences into art. Whether it’s boob selfies or something much deeper, these female artists are taking it upon themselves to share their experiences. After all, why shouldn’t they? It might just inspire someone else out there in the world who has

Feminist art has changed over time and continues to change, but there are several characteristics that identify feminist art.

One of the most important features of feminist art is that it challenges stereotyped gender roles. For example, in the 1970s, feminist artists started making political statements about the oppression of women. One way this was done was by using traditionally masculine materials or styles. In her series “The Dinner Party,” Judy Chicago used china and crystal in a very traditional way to make a statement about women’s oppression. Another form of challenging gendered norms is using sexuality in a way that challenges stereotypical roles by placing women in sexually aggressive or dominant positions, as was done in “The Dinner Party” with the vulval shaped place settings.

Another feature of feminist art is that it seeks to represent all women, not just white middle-class women. The goal was to represent all women’s experiences and views rather than only their own individual points of view. This often meant the inclusion of female stereotypes and trappings related to working-class culture, such as domestic chores or other forms of unpaid labor.

In addition to challenging gender stereotypes and representing more than one type of woman, feminist artists sought to include more people other than white middle-class women in their work
