Push for Change 2021: Celebrating Women's History Month
Happy International Women’s Day! For one of our favorite days of the year honoring womxn all across the globe, we’re kicking off our annual celebration of womxn creatives and artists for the rest of March.
We’re back with our annual Push for Change campaign for Women’s History Month! This year, we want to highlight some amazing artists and community leaders creating work and leading dialogues around the topics of gender equality.
Without further ado, we’d like to introduce the Curators/featured artists for Push for Change 2021.
Michela Negri is a freelance illustrator and graphic designer based in Italy. Her work often revolves around the relationship between womanhood and sexuality, intersectional gender equality, and sexual and reproductive health and education.
She graduated from the Medardo Rosso Art High School and the IED (European Institute of Design) with honors in Illustration. She loves everything that belongs to the past (vintage clothes to tobacco pipes) and loves talking about feminism, sexual health and lgbtq+ topics.
