Intersectional feminism is the current terminology that expresses the empowerment of women to effect change across a diverse range of issues: women’s health, racial and gendered violence, equality under the law, poverty, immigration and refugee rights, environmental protections, rights of indigenous communities, etc. It recognizes that true and effective change in the global sphere results from women’s organizing, joining all minority groups and inclusive of men in these efforts. An all woman exhibition, the artists included in What Feminism Looks Like will be asked to contribute works that address the range of these issues in various media.
