Women Imprint's core mission lies in fostering greater representation of women creatives in the public space.

Women Imprint is an independent U.S.-based nonprofit organization founded by art historian Kaitlyn Allen and myself in 2021. It documents the imprint of women whose lives and actions continue to inspire today. We do this by creating carefully curated walking tours of women's history, through a podcast, and through community outreach. 

To learn more about our work, including our podcast "Portrait Series", check out our website: 

Podcast: Portrait Series

We record female creatives by interviewing women working today in our "Portrait Series". Through these conversations, Women Imprint facilitates the archiving of personal biographies that come to life through the creative’s own voice. Ownership and interpretation of personal history is to Women Imprint a right and "Portrait Series" therefore an archival mission in our strategy for change. Available on Spotify, iTunes, and Podbean.


Book: Walking Women's History

We document creative women who have lived in certain places and left a mark. This is done through curated walking tours. The stops in each tour can be seen as a memorial to women who are all too often left out of public dedications. They provide information for travelers and locals alike to visit places in a fun, easy, and accessible way. At the same time, they can also be read as "armchair travels", educating the reader from home. They are a celebration of women's history.

Community Outreach 

As a nonprofit, contributing to our communities' well-being is a cornerstone of our mission. Through our outreach program, we specifically work with girls and women, oftentimes in collaboration with other institutions. Our goals are, among others, to give educational support and help uproot poverty on a larger scale, to inspire and uplift, and to bring joy. Through this program, we aim to create a space where our participants feel like they are not alone in their journey.


Team 

Women Imprint was founded by art historian Kaitlyn Allen and myself and became a nonprofit organization in 2021. Like all great things, we started small. We took a few like-minds with a shared vision and ran with it. From the very beginning in 2017, we have grown into a beautiful, creative, and inspiring organization with board members, interns, volunteers, and collaborators such as activists, artists, researchers, and podcasters nationwide. It's an immense honor being part of this project and working alongside Kaitlyn and everyone else who has joined our journey.
