Radikal Art: The Women’s Building

The beautiful Women’s Building in San Francisco is a non-profit center which advocates self-determination, gender equality and social justice. The mural was done by seven women artists: Juana Alicia, Miranda Bergman, Edythe Boone, Susan Kelk Cervantes, Meera Desai, Yvonne Littleton and Irene Perez, and depicts feminine icons from history and fiction. The rainbow that’s weaved throughout features the names of more than 600 women written in calligraphy.
