Once Donald Trump Called Hilary Clinton a 'Nasty Women' a new art movement was formed, originally started in New York by artist Roxeanne Jackson and Jessamyn Fiore when a post on face book that read 'Hello female artists/curators! Lets organize a NASTY WOMEN group show!!! Who’s interested??? .' Nasty Women is a global art movement that serves to demonstrate solidarity among artists who identify with being a Nasty Woman in the face of threats to roll back women’s rights, individual rights, and abortion rights. With over forty fundraising art exhibitions taking place around the United States and abroad, Nasty Women Exhibitions also serve to support organizations defending these rights and to be a platform for organization and resistance. This culminated in multiple exhibitions all over the world raising thousands of pounds from donated works for many causes.

Made from a carrier bag that has strawberries printed on it. Simulating a Vagina, this represents the part of a women's body that is abused and mutilated. The choice of bag and colour high-lights the damage these horrendous acts cause.
