Marcia G. Yerman, based in New York City, writes profiles, interviews, essays, and articles focusing on women’s issues, health, human rights, culture and the arts. She is a contributing writer for Empowher, Women Make News, and Women’s Radio. Her work has been published by AlterNet, RH Reality Check, and The Women’s Media Center. She is a member of the Political Voices of Women. Her online work is archived at mgyerman.com. Yerman promotes the view that if women's frame of reference is not reflected in the arts (film, theater, visual arts, literature), then their identities and visions will be defined by male-driven popular culture. She has served as a consultant to both non-profit organizations and the business sector. She handled public relations and outreach for the Feminist Art Project and was host and producer of Women In Art, a cable television program. Her background includes work as both a curator of exhibitions reflecting diversity, and as an artist. Yerman is co-founder of cultureID, an online community/platform dedicated to creating a nexus between culture and activism.
