International Women's Day: Celebrating Sisterhood, Protecting Women.

International Women's Day is a day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women around the world. It is also a day to recognize the continued struggle for gender equality and the protection of women's rights.

In recent years, we have seen a rise in narcissistic and abusive behavior from men, both in personal relationships and in positions of power. This behavior is not only harmful to women but also to the society at large. Women need protection, support, and a sense of sisterhood to help them navigate these difficult times.

Creating a Sisterhood throughout life and through Art

One of the most powerful things women can do is to come together and create a sense of sisterhood. Women have faced oppression and discrimination for centuries, but when we join forces and support each other, we can make a difference. By creating a community of support and sisterhood, we can empower each other and work towards a more equitable and just society.

 

Women who are victims of domestic violence and abuse often face disbelief and victim-blaming. It is essential to believe women when they come forward with their experiences and to hold the perpetrators accountable. We must prioritize the safety of women and children, even when it is uncomfortable or inconvenient.

 

Children who witness or experience abuse in their homes are at risk of long-term emotional and psychological damage. We must do everything in our power to protect these children from the men who perpetrate violence and abuse. This includes holding these men accountable and ensuring that they cannot continue to harm others.

 

Men have a vital role to play in creating a more equitable and just society. They must hold themselves accountable for their actions and call out inappropriate behavior from other men. This means holding your brothers, sons, fathers, and friends accountable when they act inappropriately towards women. It also means educating themselves on issues of gender equality and working to dismantle systems of oppression.

 

On this International Women's Day, we want to take a moment to thank the female artists who have faced tougher barriers in the art world and in everyday life. Maria Larissa Quartin, Patti Endo, Manue G, and Nadia Wamunyu are just a few of the incredible artists who have used their creativity to challenge stereotypes, celebrate diversity, and uplift marginalized voices.

 

To the men out there who have been raised well or not, we encourage you to do better and protect the women in your life. Real men prioritize the safety and well-being of their wives, girlfriends, sisters, and daughters. By working together, we can create a world where women can live free from fear and oppression. Happy International Women's Day
