Created in 1994, Edgy Women is an annual showing of short, highly physical works by women, often characterized by a transdisciplinary approach. Presented by Studio 303 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Edgy Women focuses on feminist perspectives with workshops and forums, performance events, and socializing. Studio 303's artistic and general manager Miriam Ginestier programmed Edgy Women from 1995 to 2014. In 2010, it was held from mid to late March.
Past performers include actress Marie Brassard, Jess Dobkin (performance artist), Céline Bonnier (actress), Dayna Mcleod (performance artist), Nathalie Claude (performance artist), Coral Short (performance artist), Karen Bernard, Les Fermières Obsédées (Quebec City), Jennifer Miller (USA), and Alexis O'Hara (performance artist).
Studio 303 presented Edgy Women from 1994 to 2013 and Edgy Redux from 2014 to 2016 as a way to highlight the performance work of women working outside traditional venues and disciplines.
