We are Nasty Women London
Founded by Paige Megan Hawley, creating a space in London for intersectional feminist artists to speak loud through a range of different art medias, gaining a voice through creativity and coming together as a community.
We believe in equality, stand for women's rights and use art as a form of expression for protest!
September 21st 2017 was When Nasty Women London held their first exhibition, to mark the International Day of Peace, 41 international artists including the famous Charles Woodman took part and was visited by over 3,000 people.
It was in January 2017 that over 700 artists from around the world took part in the first ever Nasty Women Exhibition in New York, where this movement established. Named after the Trump slur to Clinton during presidential debates "Nasty Women" offered artists the opportunity to be involved in a visual protest against the Trump administration whilst raising money for women’s charities in the US. Curated by Roxanne Jackson and Jessamyn Fiore, it served to demonstrate solidarity among artists who identify with being a Nasty Woman in the face of threats to roll back women’s rights, individual rights, and abortion rights. It also served as a fundraiser to support organizations defending these rights. Nasty Women has gone on to become a global cultural, fundraising and campaigning movement.
