"The idea for SWAN Day grew out of a collaboration between WomenArts and Chicago’s WITASWAN (Women in the Audiences Supporting Women Artists Now). WITASWAN is an informal alliance of women who are using their power as consumers to increase opportunities for women artists. It began as an initiative of the Illinois chapter of the American Association of University Women. The complete history of WITASWAN is at www.films42.com/witaswan.asp. "...."Jan Lisa Huttner invited Martha Richards, the Executive Director of WomenArts, to speak at an American Association of University Women conference in Bloomington, IL in April 2007.
