Nasty Women Making History

The Nasty Women Art Exhibition in Queens, NYC, ended Sunday. They have shared that they SOLD OUT the entire show. Over $42,000 in proceeds raised will go to Planned Parenthood. The Knockdown Center’s programing “Stay Nasty” also raised over $8,000 for smaller non-profits benefiting women’s rights, bringing the grand total to over $50,000.

We want to get the word out to as many artists who would like to join in our effort of solidarity defending women’s rights, individual rights, and reproductive rights. Distributing our flyer will help get the word out for patrons to attend our exhibit, buy art and support Planned Parenthood.

We are proud to be sharing efforts with this worthy cause and I will be attending the Memphis Women’s March with my husband, Kenny, on January 21st!  The Memphis Women’s March welcomes anyone to march with them, male or female, and states, “Absolutely everyone who supports the cause is welcome!”.

I hope all of our Nasty Women artists and supporters will be marching together on January 21st and supporting the powerful protest against the Trump presidency in the Memphis Women’s March!
