ARTIST & ACTIVIST
Maggie O'Neill is an artist, designer, community builder, and activist based in Washington, DC. Ignited by the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade in June 2022, O'Neill turned to art to express herself, and as a tool for propaganda.
"I am endlessly inspired by "Fearless Girl" and wanted to create colorful statues of little girls in different shapes, sizes, ages to represent the millions of Americans (our daughters) who are losing their rights to their bodily autonomy and critical health care." - Maggie O'Neill
The first iteration of this installation stood on Monday, November 7, 2022 in front of the Capitol and the Supreme Court. On December 5, 2022, we brought the girls down to Atlanta for the Georgia Senate Runoff. This installation of 51 little "Fearless Girls" was her draft or a "sketch" of a larger idea and national grassroots campaign.
