“What are women’s human rights?  Are all women given the same rights? Are men and women equal yet?  What are your hopes for the world’s women and girls in the decade ahead?” These are all questions the International Museum of Women is asking people across the globe…through art. The organization recently launched a huge-scale art project to raise awareness about what we STILL need to achieve for gender equality. It’s a simple task that will lead to clarity and a broader sense for what each individual finds significant, and how to make changes.

Some of these achievements are simple and heartbreaking, like educational resources, a safer community or access to natal care. But these are real issues facing women everywhere and artists have the power to unite and illuminate these topics.

 

Artists--and all people-- have a moral obligation to use their abilities to improve the world, and what better way to do that than this? Even better is the array of topics to be covered: power, poverty, violence, education, work and health…the list goes on and on. Any ideas are accepted and the project is carefully directed towards Women’s HUMAN Rights; women’s basic rights that should belong to all humans.

“We are accepting submissions of any media type for our new global online media project Imagining Equality: Your Voices on Women’s Human Rights.” This project was born to spark attention for Women’s Human Rights that are so often overlooked. The project will “amplify the voices of women who might otherwise go unheard.”

 

 

By participating in this project, you can share your unique experience and perspective on equality through art. Submissions will be reviewed by the projects curatorial team and then displayed in the online exhibition in June 2014. 

Your task is simple, complete the following sentence: “Equality is….” and submit your work here.
