Dreams for Women - UN Edition!



















Here are the Dreams for Women postcards that were made by other participants at the UN's 52nd meeting of the Commission on the Status of Women! The theme for the meeting was 'Financing Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment' and so many of them are related to economic and financing issues. Enjoy.
About Dreams for Women:

Antigone Magazine is launching a Feminist Postcard art project and fundraiser but instead of asking what your secrets are, we want to know what your Dreams for Women are.What are your own dreams for yourself, your friends, your sisters, your daughters? Paint, draw, write, sketch or decoupage your dreams on a postcard and send it to the address below:

Antigone Magazine
C/O WILLA UBC
Box 61-6138 SUB Boulevard
Vancouver, BC, Canada
V6T 1Z1

OR

With your postcard submission, we ask that you make a donation (if you can!) to Antigone Magazine for anywhere from $1 to $10. You can send your money along with your postcard or donate on our blog: http://www.antigonemagazine.blogspot.com/ .
But don't worry... if you don't have the money, just send along the postcard and tell people about this program. We will be posting postcards every second Saturday starting in January on the blog!

What is Antigone Magazine? We're a grassroots national magazine that works to encourage young women to get involved in politics in Canada. We work to empower young women to engage politically and civically and to actively take part in leadership roles.We are raising the money in order to help launch the Antigone Foundation, a national foundation that will encourage young women aged 10-30 to get politically and civically engaged. Help support Antigone as we help to make the dreams of young women come true!

We want submissions from all over the world - so forward this on! Post it on your blog! Or link to it!
