“Focus on what women can do rather than what they can’t do. Feminism shouldn’t be about what we can’t do.” – Mary Stewart

If more young people (women AND men) of today had Mary’s convictions and the courage & confidence to go after them, the future of the world would be a lot brighter.
“Lean In” … I love it !! It is all about taking a first step to involve yourself in something at a higher level. It doesn’t matter how big or small. Have courage in your own voice
Truly inspiring. We have known this all along and even centuries before us. Women has always been the stronger gender so why have we been so hesitant to lean in. Now is the time to do so!
Very interesting! I’ve never seen the field of design through such an intriguing light.
Such a great idea to give intelligent and unapologetic young people a voice through the medium of art and design. The way forward!
loved this!! So thought provoking – and the term ‘lean in’ … What a wonderful concept!!
This is great! You guys are queens. Thank you <3
The way forward has always been through strong women. Let’s be sure to teach our daughters to “lean in!”
Love the expressionism. Great work !!!
Empower yourself and be engaged! Fantastic viewpoint from this young lady.
I did not know anything qbout the Lean In movement but now that I do I think that it is an amazing idea and everyone should do it.
