Reading the women’s words, seeing their photos and videos, you will realize why we love them and want the best for them. They are everyday warriors, trying to flourish, aided by a profound sense of dignity, reverence and joy for a life that has not been very kind to them. The world needs to see and acknowledge them. We must all bear witness to their spirit and courage. And cheer to their triumph. By acknowledging and connecting with them, we stay alert, give respect and begin to elevate them and ourselves.
We then find inspiration in their lives even as they seem so different from ours. Because the reality is that they, like us, dream of a better future for themselves and their children.
We hope this gallery makes that connection tangible. We created it with love, as their place to shine.
