Barbara Deming (1917-1984) was a feminist, lesbian, poet, writer and nonviolent activist in the civil rights, anti-war and women’s movements. She founded the Money for Women Fund in 1975 to give financial and moral support to creative women.
Money for Women is the oldest ongoing feminist granting agency. After Barbara’s Deming’s death in 1984, it became a memorial fund. They are still feminist and still willing to take risks. The fund gives encouragement and grants ($500 – $1500) to individual feminists in the arts (writers, and visual artists).
