Projects
  • The Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon added 100 new Wikipedia entries on female artists—in one day. Another 80 articles were beefed up.
  • The Lean In stock photography collection portrays women as real, interesting people. It’s not all about female gender roles, though; the collection also portrays men as loving caregivers (dads!).
  • Seeing New York, a cinemagraph series by Ann Street Studio
  • You can Kickstart issue 3 of Got a Girl Crush magazine!
Anniversaries
  • Ladies in Tech celebrated their one year anniversary, and have much more planned for 2014.
  • Kate Bingaman-Burt wrapped up her daily-drawing project, which she has maintained for eight years as of February 2014. That’s commitment.
Etc.

  • If you’re ever in D.C., check out the National Museum of Women in the Arts.
  • Discover new ladies in lit on Girlebooks (most of which are free).
