Welcome to Female Arts

Female Arts crowdfunder. Please sponsor us. In exchange for the price of a couple of drinks, we can promote your show, event or business. Take a look at our 'rewards' for more info http://www.sponsume.com/project/female-arts-magazine-femaleartscom

Women are not equally represented in the arts and in business – this ranges from a lack of roles for women over 40 on TV and in theatre, to a glass ceiling for senior roles in business, to unequal pay. Female Arts promote women in interviews, reviews and news to redress this gender imbalance. We're interested in the performing, visual and literary arts with the focus on women including theatre, exhibitions, film, literature, comedy, music, women in business, in the UK and beyond. Read more About Us and please Support Us. If you'd like us to share with our readers what you're involved in please read our Review FAQ's then email your press release to Wendy Thomson editor@femalearts.com.

The Devil & Stepashka, Ye Olde Rose and Crown - Review

You’re the Devil in disguise.” So said Elvis Presley in his 1963 hit. The blame game in sexual politics has always been prevalent in culture, from the Pandora of the ancient Greeks opening THAT box to Eve eating from the forbidden tree in Eden.
