International Women's Art Installation
Save the Date: April 13, 2020 

Please note: Due to COVID-19, this year's art installation will take place virtually via the Ohio University Women's Center Twitter page @OUwomenscenter

The Women's Center and Office of Global Affairs invite you to help us create the second annual immersive installation of women's experiences around the world to celebrate, and advocate for, women's lives around the world. We hope this installation creates an environment of inclusion but also provides an opportunity for International students to offer the narrative of what is shared about their countries.

The purpose of International Women’s Day is to globally celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women, as well as to work towards equality in areas that are still inequitable. With this in mind, submissions for the installation fall under the following themes:

  • Girlhood & Representations of Girlhood around the World
  • Body Image
  • Embodiment
  • Women in the Media (literary, film, television, and music)
  • Violence Against Women
  • Women & War
  • Women and Body & Women and Health (menstruation, maternal health, cancer, health inequities, women and disability)
  • Say Her Name
  • The Intersection of Gender with LGBTQ Identities
  • The Intersection of Gender with Race and Ethnic Identities
  • Women in the Workplace
  • Women & Leadership
  • Women in Protest Movements
  • Women & Poverty
  • Women & Immigration
  • Women Leaders & Role Models
  • Success Stories of Women's Rights Achieved or Moments that Capture Resiliency
  • Women's Suffrage (2020 is the centennial of the 19th amendment! This category can include histories of racism and suffrage)

While we will not have the opportunity to showcase these amazing submissions in person, we are elated to have artist's featured on Twitter (@OUwomenscenter) all day April 13, 2020! We look forward to seeing you online!
