“I feel there have been challenges as a woman for work, equal pay and getting an exhibition of my work. I took a workshop in the early 90’s with Diane Torr advertised as “Be A Man For A Day” - Tired of not getting that work, that show. Learn to how to walk, talk, think like a man. I’ve learned your identity is really a construct. You can be who you want to be.” - Shari Diamond is an NYC based artist. ShariDiamond.net

“After watching the Bud Knight Super Bowl commercial I decided to do a genderbend costume and I built a Lady Bud Knight costume  with breast cups. It was a big hit at Comic con in Philly and so Bud Light reached out to me and wanted to write a backstory about Lady Bud Knight and they sent me to Comic con in San Diego.  The people at Budlight asked me, “How did you come up with the idea to make this costume?”  And I essentially told them that I stole their idea and gave it tits. And then I said, “You guys need more women in your boardroom.” - Marina Linderman

“You don’t think there will be as much adversity in the business world for women , but there is. I’m a woman and I’m young and people assume you don’t know what you’re doing. People walk into my restaurant and ask to talk to the owner and they don’t expect me to be the owner. You have to build a strong character especially in NYC. People can say whatever, but you have to know what you’re doing and know what you are doing for your future.” Zubaida Elhage is the co-owner of Cocoa Grinder on Nostrand Ave.
