Welcome to the KFW Community Blog!

In an effort to make more voices heard, the Kentucky Foundation for Women created a comprehensive communication plan this past year. In addition to our Facebook presence, we started Twitter and Instagram accounts, so that we can spread the word about the powerful and diverse work feminist artists are doing across the state, and to spark a conversation about how feminist art facilitates social change in Kentucky. In a similar spirit, we’ve started the blog you’re reading right now. We envision all of these forums as opportunities to feature a wide range of perspectives and views on feminism, art, and social change.
