I was recently contacted by Wendy Thomson, who runs a website called Female Arts, an online magazine promoting women in the arts and in business. There are lots of ways arts practitioners and business people could cross-fertilise, and share their industry specific working practices (see my interviews with Suzanne Doyle-Morris and Julia Streets, for some examples of this,) so I was pleased to hear about this organisation.
Wendy Thomson, editor of Female Arts says “Women are not equally represented in the arts or in business – this ranges from a lack of roles for women over 40 on TV and in theatre, to a glass ceiling for senior roles in business, to unequal pay. Female Arts is committed to reducing gender inequality by promoting women in the arts and in business.”
Female Arts was established in 2011 as a commitment to reduce gender inequality by promoting women in the arts and in business. Female Arts interview inspirational women, review shows they think you’d be interested in, write features on individuals and companies you want to know about and provide information on the latest happenings. All this and regular blog updates.
They have a small review team that covers events in London, Reading, Bath, Cardiff, Birmingham, Cambridge, and across the UK and are looking for more people to join them. Please get in touch with Female Arts directly if you would like to contribute.
