Mostly contemporary, all amazing. I'm sure I'm forgetting some great ones but these are the first 25 that came to me. They are inspiring not only as artists but as women and mothers and feminists and humans and I just relish in all the beautiful things they have put into the world. Let me know if I've missed one of your faves!
