Welcome to Female Arts

Women are not equally represented in the arts – this ranges from a lack of roles for women over 45 on TV and in theatre, to a glass ceiling for senior roles in business, to unequal pay. Female Arts promote women in interviews, reviews and news to redress this gender imbalance. We're interested in the performing, visual and literary arts with the focus on women including theatre, exhibitions, film, literature, comedy, music, women in business, in the UK and beyond. We support #allwomen and would like to see more women of colour, disability, and LGBTQI in the media. We welcome supportive men. Read more About Us our Review Team and Associate Artists and please Support Us. If you'd like us to share with our readers what you're involved in please read our Review FAQ's then email your press release to Wendy Thomson editor@femalearts.com.
