SHOP Girls Like Us 2024

The Girls Like Us collaboration series is now available to purchase with 50% of sales going to charities that support women and children, including: UN Women, Warchild, Sistah Space, A Bloody Good Period & Refuge. Each selected young artist will receive one of the limited edition artworks that their art is featured in.

At the heart of this collection is a determination to challenge the stark gender disparities in the art world. Shockingly, only 13.7% of living artists represented by galleries in Europe and North America are women, according to a 2022 source. In the UK, however, 73% of students in postgraduate art and design courses are women (2020 source).

Aunt Joy Gallery was born out of a desire to shift these statistics and pave a smoother path for our young female creatives.  It was very important to us that we opened the call to girls between 8 and 14. The studies show that across these years girls’ confidence levels drop by 30% (source). It’s potentially across these sensitive formative years that we have the most potential to inspire, when young girls are looking outward, reading society, to see where it is that they might fit in, and what it is that they might strive for. We hope you love the collection, and we send a heartfelt thank you to everyone involved.
