WCA is powerful women committed to making a difference in the world and taking on a new role regarding women in the arts.

~Marilyn Hayes

Women too numerous to mention served with me in the leadership of the WCA to grow it into a vital national arts organization.

~ Helen Klebesadel

The Women’s Caucus has been a singularly important umbrella of support and concern for women artists in the US. Regardless of whether one is an active member or just a struggling woman artist, the fact that it is there, brings a level of consciousness into the art domain, that without would make everyone bereft.

~ Barbara T. Smith
