"We are thrilled that a wider movement in the art market giving female artists prominence is gaining traction," states Megan Mulrooney, Senior Specialist, Post-War & Contemporary Art at Paddle8.  "There has never been a more prescient context for this vital effort than today's tumultuous discourse on women's rights."
