5 women artists

The #5WomenArtists campaign [started by National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA), USA] calls attention to the fact that women have not been treated equally in the art world, and today they remain dramatically underrepresented and undervalued in museums, galleries, and auction houses.
We at The Heritage Lab, present you 5-Women-Artists each March, for Women’s History Month.
