The International Violence Against Women Act

The International Violence Against Women Act

The International Violence Against Women Act (I-VAWA) is a historic and unprecedented effort of the U.S. government to take leadership in establishing an overall and integrated approach to respond and address violence against women and girls internationally. The Act establishes a Coordinator to Combat Violence Against Women Internationally. The time is now to capitalize on this awareness and support and to enact this comprehensive vision to address the problem of violence against women.

Help End Violence Against Women and Girls: Sign the I-VAWA Petition!

Help End Violence Against Women and Girls: Sign the I-VAWA Petition!

It's estimated that 1 out of 3 women worldwide will be the victim of violence or abuse at some point in their lives. This must stop.

The International Violence Against Women Act (IVAWA), is a bill now before Congress that, if passed, would, for the first time, comprehensively incorporate these solutions into all U.S. foreign assistance programs - solutions such as promoting women's economic opportunity, addressing violence against girls in school, and working to change public attitudes - bring about transformational change. Please urge Congress to make the IVAWA a reality for the millions of women worldwide it would affect by signing the petition.

de l'exposition Les Femmes, Le Pouvoir et la Politique:

Semences de la Résistance
"Les semences sont notre mère", déclare la physicienne et activiste Vandana Shiva, fondatrice de l'organisation révolutionnaire indienne de préservation des semences, Navdanya. Le nom de cette organisation signifie "neuf récoltes". Sa mission: Soutenir les fermiers locaux et sauvegarder et conserver les récoltes qui sont poussées vers l'extinction. "La semence est le premier lien dans la chaîne alimentaire », explique Vandana Shiva. "Préserver les semences est notre devoir, partager les semences est notre culture."

de Votre Exposition:

Ino

In Greek mythology, Ino committed suicide by throwing herself into the sea. Instead of dying, she was transformed into a sea deity.

In the Norse variant, Ino was known as a firm ruler and a wanderer.

My Ino is Queen of the Earth, endlessly transforming herself while waiting for the war to be over.

de Votre Exposition:

I collect objects that later become part of my art: wooden toys, feathers, corks, chopsticks, buttons, beads, hardware, car parts, wire, aluminum cans, a bird nest from a miniature pine forest in Kauai, seashells, and once, a skin shed from a six-foot long snake.

With Panel Series I created small tableau assemblages that speak to each other. I use driftwood to weave the pieces together and I add color to the bleached branches and fist-shaped knots even though doing it feels almost sacrilegious: the driftwood is intrinsically so beautiful.
