The second LES FEMMES FOLLES anthology includes art, poetry and interview excerpts from over 150 women in all forms of art featured on femmesfollesnebraska.tumblr.com in 2012.
Words of praise:
What is feminism today for women artists? In Les Femmes Folles: The Women 2012, Sally Deskins collects the interviews, art, and words from women artists from Nebraska, the United States, and abroad in the second annual print edition of the journal with the same name. "Feminism," Kathleen Rooney tells us "is extremely important." Feminism "means being able to work in an industry that is overwhelmingly men and holding my own," explains Paige Reitz. "Feminism," Ellen Wilde writes "has allowed me to think and act creatively in my career." Editor, founder, and curator of LFF, Deskins suggests in this new anthology that feminism, like poetry, like art is not a luxury. Like Audre Lorde tell us, "It is a vital necessity of our existence."
