Artists as women’s rights advocates: Speakers relate how they use their art to champion women and address injustice and oppression.

From reproductive rights to freedom of expression, from domestic abuse to state persecution, the enduring battles to secure women’s rights are many and varied. Leading advocates for women’s rights* relate the issues they are passionate about, and how they have used various art forms to explore and address injustice.

Our panelists for this event include photographer Camila Cavalcante and graphic novelists Maria Stoian & Una, contributors to Drawing Power, alongside performer and visual artist Evie Siddal. The event is chaired by refugee rights activist Pinar Aksu.

*Our definition of women is of course trans-inclusive. For more information on our values as intersectional feminists and our safer spaces policy click HERE.
