Women artists are on-line for the same reasons as everyone else: to connect with other people, to define themselves and their brands, and to create on-line communities that will nourish and sustain their vision, creating the opportunities necessary to achieve their personal and professional goals. But the very things that draw women on-line, can also quickly drive them away.
Given the perceived rage and harassment of women on-line, how many of them are still deeply ambivalent of presenting their vision on-line, even in 2015? How many women are frankly terrified of putting their art in the maw that is Facebook, Twitter, etc.? The years keep piling up, and yet women continue to be judged, and to judge themselves, by exhaustive, unrealistic, destructive standards.
