Dedicated to the care and keeping of brassy women.


illustrations by Allegra Lockstadt

Creation leaves us exposed. Taking risks, solving problems, sharing ideas, making things you care about: this is scary work. So if you also feel uncomfortable and laid bare in your work, you are not alone. It’s a good sign; that tension means you are on the right track. It’s what doing the work you are supposed to do feels like.
— Meagan Fisher, Design & Vulnerability
when creating. be kind to your doubt. hear it out. thank it for its concern. and reassure it that you are an artist. and risk is essential.
— nayyirah waheed
I need each of you to tell every young woman you know — your sister, your niece, your employee, your colleague — to be comfortable with imperfection, because when we teach girls to be imperfect, and we help them leverage it, we will build a movement of young women who are brave and who will build a better world for themselves and for each and every one of us.
— Reshma Saujani

what does womanhood mean for you?
Authenticity, giving others and yourself encouragement, and agency without feeling ashamed, embarrassed about, or apologizing for what you want (but self-forgiveness is ok!)
