Count ‘Em: 365 Ways of Feminism

by Erika W. Smith

Do you like your feminism fun, crafty, and creative? We do!  That’s why we were thrilled to discover Midge Belickis’s art series, “365 Ways of Feminism.”

Midge, 24, is a freelance graphic designer, feminist, and recent FIT grad. In July, she began her “365 Ways of Feminism” project. Every day for a year, Midge will decorate the female symbol to represent the many different ways people can be feminists. Lipstick, fists, high heels, combat boots, Divine, BUST columnist Roseanne Barr – all make an appearance, all are feminist, and all are awesome.

 

 

“I’m more of a visual person, but I always want to talk about different ways of feminism,” Midge says. “Graphics are easy to play around with, so I can make variations on the symbol to express how there are different ways to be feminist. I had a series on body hair, and a series on makeup, because I always get, ‘Oh, you’re a feminist? But you shave your legs and you wear makeup!’ I wanted to open up a forum on this sort of body politics, because there are so many ways to express yourself as a feminist.” 

She’s currently on Day 95 (and hasn’t missed a day yet!), so there’s still plenty to come. You can follow along on Midge’s Tumblr, Modern Girl Blitz

 

 

As if that weren’t enough awesomeness for one person, Midge also runs a quirky feminist Etsy store, also called Modern Girl Blitz. She makes buttons, stickers, zines, and more. Here are a few of my favorites:
