Freemuse published its report titled Creativity Wronged: How women’s right to artistic freedom is denied and marginalised on 29 November 2018.
The report highlights the issues related to women’s artistic expression and how it is limited due to interference of government agencies, artistic communities and non-state actors, such as religious groups, social media and private education institutions. It covers the stories of women artists who were, among other violations, censored, threatened, harassed, persecuted, attacked, imprisoned and killed. In order to get exceptional insights into the situation of women artists around the globe, Freemuse conducted interviews with some of the violated artists from countries such as Afghanistan, Iceland, Iran, India, Russia and Vietnam.
