From writer Abigail Cardi of Bustle.com :
When you walk into one of the major museums or galleries anywhere in the world, you’ll never be lacking in beautiful art to take in. Yet there’s a good chance that you’ll have to search a bit harder in those spaces to find art made by a woman. In fact, here’s a shocking statistic: Today, 51 percent of visual artists are women — yet their work makes up less than five percent of permanent collections.
This needs to change.
