"Where are all the women?"
The Holy Women Icons Project began in 2009 with this question.
Confronted with a virtually all male sainthood in nearly every religious tradition, our founder and Executive Director, Rev. Dr. Angela Yarber furiously began painting women. Each painting highlights and celebrates the life of a revolutionary woman from history, myth, and scripture. Representing many cultures, religious traditions, and historical periods, these Holy Women Icons lift up the often overlooked and untold lives, legends, and legacies of inspirational women.
The Holy Women Icons series is both a playful and politically significant folk-feminist twist on traditional iconography.
