Where are all the women artists? According to the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA), 51% of visual artists today are women, yet only 5% of work on US museum walls is by women, and work by women makes up only 5% of major permanent collections in the US and Europe. And according to a research paper, “The Gender Gap in Art Museum Directorships,” published by the Association of Art Museum Directors, women hold just 24% of art museum director positions at museums with budgets over $15 million and earn 71¢ for every dollar earned by male directors.
