The Arts connect us all - anywhere, anytime

The Global IWD Women's Arts Initiative celebrates the collective creative ability of women. 2011 saw 100 years since the first International Women's Day was held so to mark this special Centenary the '100 Women, 100 Artworks' and '100 Women, 100 Stories' initiative was launched.

All the artworks (paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs, drawings, sketches, collages ...) and stories have been created by diverse women from around the world to inspire, challenge, entertain and provoke thought from a gender angle.

The impressive artworks celebrate the artistic grace of women. The stories are of celebration, hurt, triumph, shock, humour, anger, remembrance and question. Enjoy !
