"I especially hope to inspire young women, because I often feel like so much emphasis is put on how beautiful you are, and how thin you are, and not a lot of emphasis is put on what you can do and how smart you are. I’d like to change the emphasis of what’s important when looking at a woman."
—Margaret Kilgallen

For International Women’s Day, we premiere a new video from our Exclusive series featuring Margaret Kilgallen (1967–2001)—our current 100 Artists featured artist—where she discusses her heroines, which were often incorporated into her work. Filmed in 2000, this newly-edited video contains previously unreleased footage with the late artist.
