11 Wise Women

Today is International Women's Day 2011. The world  today celebrates 100 years of progress towards gender equality. International Women's Day, however, is both a day to celebrate and a day to draw attention to the challenges that remains before gender equality is truly realised.

What  a significant day to meet with a special woman /gallery owner to negotiate a series a workshops culminating in an exhibition of handmade, soft sculptured  art dolls ,"Wise Women" or as they have been affectionately become known as WOWs (Women of Wisdom). The exhibition opening is planned for International Women's Day 2012. Naturally, I began to think of all the "Wise Women" I've made over the last few years, as well as the many wise women who have taken workshops to make their own. I wonder how many women from the WOW pattern now exist? I have chosen eleven of my creations to help celebrate this very special day 2011...

Happy International Women's Day to my women friends and to the women in my family who are all wise . Here is a special short documentary On Her Shoulders  -  Thanks to all the brave women who have come before us to make our lives so much more fulfilling. Hopefully we can all work to make a small positive difference to improve the lot of women in many parts of the world where they are less fortunate than ourselves.
