Showcase your #BreakTheBias creation to the world and help forge positive change

 February 05, 2022

Each year International Women's Day (IWD) sees a number of important and exciting Missions to focus attention on areas where further action is needed to increase women's visibility and advancement.

One such Mission is the Women Creatives Mission that showcases and elevates the women of women creatives worldwide 

To celebrate the work of women creatives and elevate their visibility for commercial projects and commissions, there are a number of collaborations worldwide. One such collaboration is with global typography community Typism that rallies its worldwide audience to creatively support the annual IWD theme.

Are we were doing enough to #BreakTheBias?

"Every year I make a post about International Women's Day. This year I wondered if we were doing enough to #BreakTheBias between men vs. women designers and artists," says surreal artist, designer and lettering fanatic Aalia Rahman who likes to focus on exploring memories and mental states - and is the co-founder of the non-profit organization, Muslim Women’s Professional Network. Based in St. Louis, Aalia's passion as an artist lies in "transposing the minds of viewers as much as the artist" and says she is "torn between the love for color and the love for minimalism."
