Why is this person notable and influential?

From Wikipedia

Emma Sulkowicz is an American performance artist and anti-rape activist who first received media attention for the performance artwork Mattress Performance . The artwork consisted of Sulkowicz carrying a mattress wherever she went on campus during her final year at Columbia University. Sulkowicz said the piece would end when the student whom she alleged had raped her in her dorm room in 2012 was expelled or otherwise left the university. The work was a protest against campus sexual assault and the university's handling of the sexual assault case, in which it had cleared the accused of responsibility.
