These feminist art examples range from gender-bending superhero portraits to body celebrating cartoons that embrace a realistic figure. As more women continue to stand up for their rights, young girls are exposed to feminist art works, ad campaigns and even empowering toys more than ever before.

This positive shift in female empowerment is not only being recognized in the worlds of marketing and social business but is also taking the art world by storm. While feminism in art isn't a new notion, women's growing, global influence makes former taboos and controversial subjects shareable with a diverse audience.

Whether creating illustrations that reject traditional gender stereotypes or encouraging young women to pursue a male-dominated field like professional sports, these feminist art examples build confidence and celebrate positive growth and change.
