Make Muse originally began as a quest to spend a year without wearing makeup by founder Maura Sheedy as @makeuplessmaura on Instagram. After a year long experiment, she came to the conclusion that beauty expectations are not the only female standards and expectations that need to change.

Make Muse serves as a platform to exhibit that women and girls can be leaders, activists, entrepreneurs, and creators.  Females can do anything, despite whatever society says.

Women and girls are changing this world. We're making headlines and we're making our voices heard. Make Muse's mission is to amplify and accessify articles, opinion pieces, editorials, art, photography, and stories of real people that offer a perspective on gender roles and female equality in our society and culture.
