e.delacruz's insight:

This is the website of the National Art Education Association's Women's Caucus. The NAEAWC website links to activities of the WC, including awards, art exhibitions, history and mission, and their blog.

 

Mission Statement: 

The National Art Education Association's Women's Caucus exists to eradicate gender discrimination in all areas of art education, to support women art educators in their professional endeavors, and to educate the general public about the contributions of women in the arts.

We believe that all women and men, girls and boys, must have equal freedom and opportunity to participate in and benefit from the arts and teaching professions. Educational practices which encourage gender stereotyping in the practice of the arts and or which do not provide equal exposure to the contributions of women artists and art educators perpetuate negative gender attitudes and social patterns. Such practices maintain women in positions of limited power, achievement, and aspiration, and negatively affect all members of society.
