Los Angeles, CA – LADYSCUMBAG is a femme archetype that, until now, has not existed in the world. Committed to finding the morsel of self-interest in every situation, she will transform feminine presentation, sexuality, and perceived demureness and incompetence into weapons of mass destruction. This shift in consciousness will allow women to produce their own privilege and destroy inequalities which precipitate age-old harassment, objectification and insolence. LADYSCUMBAG, or LSB, is the fourth wave feminist superhero who uses misogynist beliefs to destroy the patriarchy.
The 2016 U.S. presidential election demonstrated that the corridors of power do not bend easily. Women’s marches in cities around the U.S. and around the globe exhibited a collective rage, acting as a call for change. It is time for LADYSCUMBAG to unleash her superpowers to set right what has wronged so many. Within the grasp of LADYSCUMBAG’s reach exists both an opportunity and responsibility to model the ethic and economy for a more equitable, liberated, and desirable world.
LADYSCUMBAG has a twofold mission. First, Visitor Welcome Center, an artist run space in Los Angeles, will be transformed into LSB’s headquarters. Acting as maternity ward, this femme-oriented co-working space will provide artist-led instruction in the feminine arts. Here, visitors can participate in daily home-ec-style classes as well as weekly events of import to the LSB community. In addition, in less than one month, over fifty contributors have already committed to provide rich content for the LSB website in order to create a globally accessible online community.
