Women's Action Coalition
Women's Action Coalition was formed, mainly by artists and communications professionals in Soho and downtown Manhattan in the early 1990s.
Born in the "year of the woman," WAC mobilized women's fury following the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings into attention-grabbing actions mixing anger, wit, and stunning visual images. These included maintaining a presence at prominent rape trials, picketing in front of art galleries that under represent women, and a Mother's Day action (featuring the famous WAC drum corps) at Grand Central Terminal protesting the billions of dollars owed in back child support.
