Shannon Downey is badass. She is all about Craftivism. And she's going global.
"My name is Shannon Downey but most folks know me as Badass Cross Stitch. I am an artist, craftivist, community builder, and general instigator. I blend my politics, activism, and art into projects that are designed to inspire others to take action, think, discuss, engage with democracy and their community, and find some digital/analog balance to boot!
This is my most ambitious project to date. A massive global craftivism project meant to capture and share the stories of as many women, female-identified, and gender non-binary humans as possible - told by the person who knows your story best – YOU."
