Holy women icons

Create. Sustain. Empower.


Telling the stories of revolutionary holy women through art, writing, and special events.

As an intersectionally ecofeminist organization, the Holy Women Icons Project seeks to empower marginalized women and to be an accomplice in the work for justice for ethnic and racial minorities, women, LGBTQs, people with differing abilities, immigrants and refugees, the poor, animals, the earth, and all living at the margins of society. 



The Holy Women Icons Project is now seeking donations to help cover startup costs, especially for creating an intersectional ecofeminist retreat center on the Big Island of Hawai'i.

You can make an easy one-time donation!

You can also make monthly contributions through Patreon.

What Do We Do? 


The Holy Women Icons Project gives traditional iconography a folk feminist twist. View the gallery to catch a glimpse at the lives of holy women who have stood for justice, danced for freedom, and upset the status quo with revolutionary acts of peace, creativity, and brilliance.

Take a closer look at the research and writing of our founder and Executive Director, Rev. Dr. Angela Yarber.

We offer a variety of intersectional, justice-oriented events. Learn more about our retreats, workshops, and sermon series. Follow us as we build our small retreat center on the Big Island of Hawai'i!

What is intersectional ecofeminism, anyway? Learn more about the history, philosophy, and future of the Holy Women Icons Project.
