“Feminism isn’t about making women strong. Women are already strong. It’s about changing the way the world perceives that strength.” —G.D. Anderson
The most beautiful creation of God is a woman. They have the power to rule. The power to create. The power to transform. They can make the world. And most of all, they can rule it. These are just few of the things that a woman can. And all of these signify how strong, determined and amazing women are.
Blessed to be part of a wonderful advocacy, Woman, Create, marked its 3rd year of seeking and fulfilling wonders through art at Hole in the Wall, Century City Mall, Makati, last Saturday (November 25).
A freelance writer and travel blogger, Ms. Danna Peña shared her insights about Purposeful Writing. Ms. Danna is also a member of Woman, Create’s #FeministBookClub.
I was amazed, and at the same time, inspired on how these muses confidently shared their art and passion to other people. Just by listening to these girls talk about how people can contribute to empower women is really encouraging. Sadly, I wasn’t able to finish all the talks because it’s really getting late.
Setting things aside, every year, portion of the planner’s earnings has been given to the plight of Syrian refugees, in particular to SavetheChildren.org – the Syrian campaign. But this year, Ms. Marika Callangan (@projectrika), the founder of Woman, Create, decided to give it to Wipe Every Tear.
A Philippine missionary organization, Wipe Every Tear is dedicated to rescuing girls who have been caught in sex trafficking. It commits to bringing hope and healing in the lives of women. To know and learn more about this advocacy, please be free to visit their website or their Tayo tab.
Planner pick-ups, artist meet-ups and a mini-postcard exhibit also occurred during the event.
365 Wonders 2018 is available in the following stores: FullyBooked Fort and Greenhills; CommonRoom Alabang Town Center, Katipunan and CommonRoom PH and Co ATC pop-up space (UGF). It costs Php 1,195.
I truly enjoyed the launching, and as I was inspired by all the talks I’ve heard, I will continue to pursue my passion just so I can inspire others, too. I will ignite the living writer in me, continue creating art and share this craft to the world (it’s possible, I know).
