Throughout history, throughout a lifetime, and even throughout a day, the roles and perceptions of a woman have, and continue, to drastically change. From mother, caregiver, healer, leader, and warrior, to victim, scapegoat, and target. Women are boundary-pushers, commanders, and glass ceiling breakers. We hope artists will capture the complexities of what it means to be a woman, and are invited to use personal experiences in their work and share them with our audience. Show us where you have been, where you are, and/or where you’re hoping to go.
