Episode 10: Art as Activism
There is no greater time than now, when we are experiencing a tremendous pushback against women’s rights and women’s rights defenders, to search for new and powerful ways to express ourselves and advocate for change. In this episode, we meet three powerhouse artists and activists: former Ford model and philanthropist, Monica Watkins, Australian singer-songwriter Jess McAvoy, and no-bounds visual artist/activist Sarita Kvam. Their narratives speak strongly to the human condition, what drives individuals to speak truth to power, and what roles art can play in today’s movements, women’s empowerment in particular. Join with us in this special episode led by Michaela Partridge, Gender at Work’s communications strategies, to learn from these mighty change makers tied together through art and love – and the freedom that ensues when you bring them together.
