Everyone - women, men, children and all gender identities - are invited to add their voice to the To Future Women archive by mailing in their handwritten letter to the artist.
From January 21 - July 21, 2018 (the six month period following the first year anniversary of the 2017 Women’s March), the artist was receiving mailed letters at The Phillips Collection museum, Washington, DC. To date, To Future Women has received over 3000 letters in 10 different languages, including from Hillary Clinton and Dr Jill Biden.
Stay tuned and follow the project as it evolves and moves. Contact the artist if you’d like to add your letter to the archive now.
Participants were asked to consider the following questions:
SINCE THE WOMEN’S MARCH and #metoo movement, WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNED, FELT OR WITNESSED THAT YOU HADN’T BEFORE?
DESCRIBE AN INSTANCE WHERE YOU’VE BECOME AWARE OF THE CHALLENGES OR REALITIES FACED BY WOMEN.
DESCRIBE IN DETAIL ONE WAY YOU HOPE THINGS WILL BE DIFFERENT FOR THE WOMAN READING YOUR LETTER IN 2037. HOW WILL IT LOOK AND FEEL FROM HER PERSPECTIVE?
May we produce honey. May we dance with our communities. May we keep our stingers sharp.
