Like so many other parts of our society, graffiti and street art tend to be male-dominated art forms. However, a growing number of women are embracing the medium and have managed to break through the competitive scene.

These women scale fences, break the law, and risk their lives to comment on the global issues that women face today. Albeit temporary, their powerful images and depictions of feminist empowerment are being seen and transforming the urban landscape.

Here are just a few examples of feminist works of street art seen around the world…
