Do you like your feminism fun, crafty, and creative? We do! That’s why we were thrilled to discover Midge Belickis’s art series, “365 Ways of Feminism.”
Midge, 24, is a freelance graphic designer, feminist, and recent FIT grad. In July, she began her “365 Ways of Feminism” project. Every day for a year, Midge will decorate the female symbol to represent the many different ways people can be feminists. Lipstick, fists, high heels, combat boots, Divine, BUST columnist Roseanne Barr – all make an appearance, all are feminist, and all are awesome.
“I’m more of a visual person, but I always want to talk about different ways of feminism,” Midge says. “Graphics are easy to play around with, so I can make variations on the symbol to express how there are different ways to be feminist. I had a series on body hair, and a series on makeup, because I always get, ‘Oh, you’re a feminist? But you shave your legs and you wear makeup!’ I wanted to open up a forum on this sort of body politics, because there are so many ways to express yourself as a feminist.”
She’s currently on Day 95 (and hasn’t missed a day yet!), so there’s still plenty to come. You can follow along on Midge’s Tumblr, Modern Girl Blitz.
As if that weren’t enough awesomeness for one person, Midge also runs a quirky feminist Etsy store, also called Modern Girl Blitz. She makes buttons, stickers, zines, and more. Here are a few of my favorites:
