Women's Perspectives: A Mother / Daughter Synergy


Young Stephanie's bold and colourful fine art photographs are juxtaposed against Anna's large and vibrant watercolour compositions - provoking a dialogue, an inspiration, or reaction to each other's art?

 

In the last decade, Maltese women and girls have made large strides in improving their lives and elevating their communities. Strong women leaders and over a dozen organizations are transforming Maltese society and providing opportunities for economic growth and fiscal independence, as well as empowering women to forge their own futures. Through increased access to reproductive healthcare, as well as platforms for economic collaboration, Maltese women and gender non-conforming individuals are being recognized for their contributions to all sectors of society, from family life to business and governmental leadership, and continue to build Malta's prospects on the global stage. While there are still steps that must be taken to ensure real and tangible equality at every level of society, women in Malta and around the world are finding strength to transform their communities and lead them to become more just and compassionate places.
