This week’s Persephone Pioneer is multimedia artist and activist Lynn Casper. Lynn is a multimedia artist, strategist, and activist. Her two active projects consist of feminist playing cards and a music podcast show, Homoground. I’m fascinated by her work on so many different levels, but above all, I am inspired by her willingness to share parts of herself in her work.

Paige Weldon is a Los Angeles-based comedian and co-founder of the comedy website, The Higgs Weldon. I came across her work after recently following her on Twitter. I would describe her comedy as insightful, witty, awkward, and smart. Just the way I like it!
