about the project
Mara Hoffman worked with social advocacy group, Art Not War, to bring together twenty five feminists, activists and artists dedicated to defending, promoting, and organizing in the name of justice, equality, and community.
Representing diverse ages, backgrounds, and aesthetics, each individual is doing inspiring work across issues such as domestic violence, human trafficking, reproductive rights, civil rights, queer rights, self care, and policy change.
In September of 2016, the participants were each photographed by Amber Mahoney in Mara Hoffman’s Spring ’17 collection. Hoffman held onto the project, waiting for a time when there would be a significant space to celebrate and promote each of these women and their work.
