“We are at a time when women are speaking out loud and clear that sexual violence must end. By breaking the silence on all the forms of sexual violence and harassment a major transition is taking place. How effective social media can change real life violence against women and children is yet to be determined. It is certainly effective but it is not enough.  ARIADNE: A Social Art Network had as its focus the integration of art, activism, media and government. I believe that model of mutual cooperation is necessary now more than ever.

My hope is that this website adds to the visibility of the long history of feminist activists and artists who have paved the way for change and contributed to this evolutionary moment.

The fact that this website is free and accessible opens it to distribution channels never before possible including as curriculum material for College and University Art and Media Arts Departments, Gender Studies, and other related fields.”
