A deck of playing cards featuring illustrations of influential feminist musicians by 14 feminist artists. A project of Homoground.
Feminist Playing Cards is the latest project of Homoground, a music website that promotes visibility for minority musicians. The deck will feature custom illustrations of 52 feminist musicians drawn by 14 feminist artists. Be sure to watch the video to see a few samples of the artists' work. The artists involved are:
Emily Henderson, Andrea Rae Georgas, Ramsey Beyer, Lauren Denitzio, Liz Prince, Marissa Paternoster, Clare Brown, Maggie Owsley, Brandi Lee, Cristy Road, Ginny Maki, Citizen A, Martha Rich and Kay Kelley.
These cards are being created RIGHT NOW. So keep checking back to see the progress of the cards and new reward levels as we get the project rolling!

The goal of $12,000 is the least amount we need to produce and manufacture the cards. The more money we raise, the more we will be able to do (T-shirts, Art shows, etc). And the sooner we hit the goal, the sooner you'll be able to see the finished deck!
Here's some of the completed drawings so far!

There are so many amazing feminist musicians that we knew going into this that we wouldn't be able to include everyone. We let the artists choose the musicians they wanted to draw. We also tried to make the list diverse. We know we can't please everyone, so please know that as much as we would love to include your favorite musician, we are limited. But you know, this is only the beginning..... :)
Yes, we will be adding new rewards as the project progresses, so keep checking back for new rewards and updates. If you have a specific request, get in touch with us and we'll figure something out!
