Dreams for Women - Tenth Week!




This postcard was submitted by one of our German readers and says: "I dream of a world in which no girl feels ugly or even not worthy of being loved just because she's single."



Here is the 10th official week of the Dreams for Women art project. I especially want to thank the Roosevelt University Feminist Majority members, who submitted a bunch of postcards this week and made a generous and much appreciated donation! Thanks to all those who submitted... and keep it up... spread the word! I just wanted to remind readers that we currently only post postcards every second week! We're hoping to post them every week but we need your help! So get some friends together and make some postcards and send them in!

First Week




Ninth Week

Also, here's another link to the new movie!




Antigone Magazine is launching a Feminist Postcard art project! 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:

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.

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!

"I dream of a world in which no girl feels ugly or even not worthy of being loved just because she's single." I think this is the most poignant and beautiful parts of your post. Every woman should be free to be who they are. Singlehood is a beautiful and a great time to pursue your dreams and passions. I've been seeking advice and inspiration from sites like yours. One of them is http://www.bewhoyouare.com -- a site by Robin Rice. She writes about self-love, joy, and hope. A recommended good read.

I have read several magazines about women and they were all interesting, of course I can relate 'coz I'm a woman too.

As of now, I can only think of the world of women with everything they need surrounding them. -love, respect and importance =)

I definitely agree with magazine lover... now that women have equal rights with men, what we need is something that we truly deserve. Those are not things but mainly emotions. =)
