The Austrian Association of Women Artists will turn 100 years old on April 1st, 2010. Its constitution took place as the first women’s artist association of Austria within the struggle for equality, rights and participation of women artists in the art world during the course of the developments of the 1st women’s movement. Its revolutionary goals demanded the advancement, regard, enhancement and establishment of artistic interests for women artists.
