We exist to help create visibility and opportunity for all women artists.

We are tired of walking through museums and galleries thinking: Where are the women artists? Curators, art dealers, collectors, editors, directors, writers, teachers and everyone else who have been excluding us;


The main purpose of this database is to open the public’s eyes to the  underrepresentation of non-male artists and the incredible talent that is left unseen. We are a registered Community Interest Company, created by Liezel Strauss (founder of ArtGirlRising) and developer, Samantha Roberts. 

If you have any questions, idea, concerns please get in touch: [email protected]


  • Out of 18 prominent art museums in the U.S. with over 10,000 artists 87% are male, and 85% are white.
  • Just 8% of public art in central London was created by women.
  • Only 13.7% of living artists represented by galleries in Europe and North America are women  
  • Of the hundred most expensive works ever sold, none are by a woman. 

We believe by creating this platform we can help shift the numbers. There are no excuses.
