Extended to June 27! Call for Submission for Honoring Women's Rights

Honoring womenThe deadline to submit your work for Honoring Women's Rights: Visual Voices Together has been extended to Wednesday June 27. Show your work in this very important exhibition -- 100 works will be selected by the jurors. For details, and to enter, login here or go

Historically, women played a central role in the struggle for civil rights, yet their voices and experience are generally ignored. We believe their roles should be examined and interpreted. We propose an exhibition to visually interpret this struggle, from a local community to a global level. This exhibition examines the social, political and economic issues related to women's activism. 

And don't miss the amazing Honoring Women's Rights Conference in Salina, CA on September 8!  Buy your conference tickets right now by clicking here
