Women’s Rights and Gender Justice

 

A non-profit helmed by women, ARTE is committed to intersectionally feminist praxis—acknowledgment of how identity-based disadvantages compound with race, ability, socioeconomic background, gender assigned at birth, religious affiliation, education, and more. Our Global Women Heroes mural exemplifies how leaders of the gender justice movement come from past and present, near and far; our most recent workshop at Rikers interrogated issues of toxic masculinity.

By the numbers: in 2019, the wage gap persisted women earned an average on 80 cents on the dollar earned by male counterparts (with 85 cents for Asian women, 77 cents for white women, 61 cents for black women, 58 cents for Native American women, and 53 cents for Hispanic/Latinx women);  20 states have laws on the books which would to ban abortion if Roe v. Wade is overturned; women of color are three times more likely to die of pregnancy-related causes than white women in the US.
