WomenArts is a worldwide community of artists and allies that works for empowerment, opportunity, and visibility for women artists. It provides a variety of free networking, fundraising, and advocacy services. WomenArts Network, an online directory of more than 1,400 women artists and artist organizations, is searchable by issues, art form, or type of artist. Listings include brief personal statements, bios, link to the artist's web site, image, and contact information. Women's Employment in the Arts provides educational sources on gender bias in the arts. WomenArts also recognizes and supports women artists through the annual SWAN Day, an international holiday to Support Women Artists Now. Artists and groups are encouraged to organize and post SWAN Day events using publicity and fundraising tools available on the web site. WomenArts also hosts WomenArts Blog, a Facebook page with the latest funding or general interest newsletters, and established the WomenArts News Room with live feeds from more than 30 feminist arts bloggers.
