‘Women Who Draw’ Is An Incredible Database Connecting Female Artists Around The World

Calling ALL female artists! Do you find yourself always asking the question, 'Where can I find all-girl artists and illustrators'? 'Women Who Draw' hopes to challenge the hiring bias its founders have observed in the publishing world by creating a database of just that. Click on the above pic for more info.

This is the kind of things that we are all the more excited to get behind and share with you all.

The concept behind “Women Who Draw” is simple: it’s a self-described “open directory of female* professional illustrators, artists and cartoonists.”

The asterisk in that statement is very important. Women Who Draw is trans-inclusive, the organisation notes. As a result, it has one succinct goal: to create a platform for women, trans and gender non-conforming illustrators find work, find each other, and continue being creative around the globe.

“Women Who Draw” originally launched in December of last year, but due to an overwhelming number of submissions in a 24-hour period, co-founders/artists Wendy MacNaughton and Julia Rothman opted to relaunch in 2017.

WWD now has around 700 active members, with 300 more on a waiting list ― interested artists can sign up easily online this very moment.
