Marcia G. Yerman, based in New York City, writes profiles, interviews, essays, and articles focusing on women’s issues and the arts. She contributes regularly to The Huffington Post, Feminism 2.0, has been published by AlterNet, and is a member of The Political Voices of Women.
Her work promotes the view that if women’s frame of reference is not reflected in the arts (film, theater, visual arts, literature), then their true identities and visions will be defined by male-driven popular culture. She has served as a consultant to both non-profit organizations and the business sector. She handled public relations and outreach for the Feminist Art Project and was host and producer of Women In Art, a cable TV program. Her background includes work as both a curator of exhibitions reflecting diversity and as an artist.
Yerman is co-founder of cultureID, an online community dedicated to a nexus of culture and activism. It will launch in 2009.
