Welcome to Female Arts

Female Arts Scratch Night! at the Bread and Roses theatre, Clapham 7.30pm 23rd November. Promoting Gender Equality - Women are not equally represented in the arts – this ranges from a lack of roles for women over 45 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. We support #allwomen and would like to see more women of colour, disability, and LGBTQI in the media. We welcome supportive men. #genderequality Read more About Us our Review Team and Associate Artists 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.

Yesterday's papers, today's ammo

The way women are treated, represented and underrepresented in theatre is no conspiracy- it’s a truth and (a should be) expected outcome of a patriarchal society...That’s the problem with institutionalised inequality, no single person is to blame, but a series of choices, facts and the reluctance to address (really address) the imbalance, all accumulate to hinder the progress of a fairer game for all.

Bare Essentials, Take Courage Theatre – Review

Encompass Productions ... perform their latest selection of new writing, which I’m delighted to say impressed me immensely. Foregoing a budget and utilising a minimum of props, Encompass have been able to produce theatre of a high-standard with a broad appeal.
