Bread and Roses

Embroidery, an age-old craft associated with femininity and domesticity, becomes a powerful medium for me to explore and advocate for women's rights.

In a world where women's voices have often been marginalized or silenced, my embroidery serves as a testament to the strength and beauty inherent in the feminine experience., I invite viewers to engage with narratives that challenge societal norms, celebrate diversity, and advocate for equality.

My work is an homage to the unsung heroines who have fought for women's rights throughout history. The juxtaposition of timeless craft with modern themes symbolizes the enduring struggle for equality that transcends time and culture.

Embroidery, often dismissed as a mere domestic craft, transforms into a powerful tool for advocacy in my hands. By elevating this traditional art form into a contemporary expression of women's rights, I hope to inspire dialogue, foster empathy, and contribute to the ongoing global conversation about gender equality. 

* In 1912, women who were factory workers in Lawrence, Massachusetts went on strike for fair wages and better working hours. Their rallying cry was that they needed bread to feed their families, but they also needed roses. We need to eat, but we also need beauty.
