Women Do It!, is the mail art exhibition of WCA’s International Caucus and its UN Program. Individual artists, mail artists, students, children, activists and concerned individuals of all genders and ages as well as classrooms and organizations were invited to create altered or hand-made postcards for the traveling Women Do It! postcard show. The exhibition is hosted in partnership by the Target Gallery and the Women’s Caucus for Art as an extension of Trending: Contemporary Art Now! which is part of WCA’s 2016 national conference in Washington, D.C. The exhibition is located in Site 2 on the second floor of the Torpedo Factory Art Center.
”Women Do It!” was inspired by and highlights the work of UN Women’s HeForShe campaign, its Beijing+20 program and in their efforts toward advancing women’s rights and gender equality in society, economics and politics.
The Women’s Caucus for Art (WCA), was founded in 1972, as an arts & activism non-profit that is still led by volunteer members. Its International Caucus is charged with maintaining WCA’s NGO (non-governmental organization) status with the United Nations and creating opportunities and collaborations with the United Nations and other international entities.
