It’s officially Women’s History Month, a month to look back on all the advancements women have contributed to society and look forward to everything yet to come. Although cryptocurrency may often seem like a male-dominated ecosystem, countless women contribute to Web 3. What better way to celebrate than to examine a few women-led NFT projects worth checking out.
#1 Women and Weapons NFT
Women and Weapons is an NFT collection created by Sara Baumann, a.k.a “Sparky.” Baumann is an Iranian-American multimedia artist from Dallas, Texas. She was initially an occupational therapist who decided to start selling art on the side while working towards her Master’s degree. In an interview, Baumann stated that she began working on a painting series as a stress-reliever when working towards her degree and her husband convinced her to mint them as NFTs.
After Gary Vaynerchuck bought three of her NFTs, the rest sold out within 1 minute. After that fateful day, she expanded the series, and now 5% of all Primary and Secondary profits go to the Malala Fund Charity. The Malala Fund is a charitable organization that enables women and girls to gain access to education.
#2 Boss Beauties
Boss Beauties is an NFT series founded by Lisa Mayer. Mayer is the CEO of My Social Canvas, a non-profit organization that provides mentorship to young girls.

The girls were asked to “imagine a collection of digital portraits to capture the empowered women they want to see and be in the world.”
After creating vision boards, the girls helped Mayer develop a collection of diverse, successful female characters. Interestingly, Boss Beauties was the first NFT collection to be featured in The New York Stock Exchange.
