International Women's Day 2018

Standing by 364 days of the year and hoping that your contribution on International Women’s Day is going to further gender equality is a no go.

Being a woman deserves to be recognized and celebrated every day of the year, but #iwd serves a special purpose. Long gone are the days of the mural industry being a boys club. Nowadays, many ladies, girls, women are stepping up to bat and completely knocking it out of the park. Many female artists live behind the name of a unisex alias, but this doesn’t stop them from being recognized as the bad ass female painters they are. We wanted to share some of our absolute favorite female muralists and show the world the good work they’re putting in.

Ya’ll are worthy of it all!
