By awarding the Simone de Beauvoir Prize for Women’s Freedom, the jury wishes to make a contribution to international solidarity, reaffirm women’s rights around the world, guarantee protection for those who currently risk their lives and stand alongside them to defend the ideals of equality and peace.

“The National Museum of Women in the Arts is extremely honored to receive the prestigious Simone de Beauvoir Prize for Women’s Freedom,” the museum’s director, Susan Fisher Sterling, said in a statement. “NMWA is dedicated to providing a platform for women’s free expression and filling the void in recognition of women artists past, present and future.”
