Viva la resistencia: Women artists in Puerto Rico and outside.

This list is an initial and urgent response to the sexist bias inserted in the national and international press discourses that continuously undermines the presence and visibility of women as an active part of the artistic class in Puerto Rico. Moved by the intention of raise awareness about their condition as Puerto Rican women and as Puerto Rican artists affected by stereotypes, sexism and colonialism as factors getting worse by the actual economical crisis, this list is a claim to the press, critics, historians and writers to grant visibility to their art and labour as actions of resistance. Women artists are present and contributing to the cultural scene in Puerto Rico from the Island and from the outside, firmly being part as important as their male counterparts. The Puerto Rican artistic class is not a masculine one.
