The Womens Postcard Project

 
 

We have in hand almost 900 postcards - from women ranging in age from 18 to 99 years old!!!!

These women have drawn, collaged and written their heartfelt, inspiring, humorous and poignant responses.

A unique website and exhibition proposal is in the making.

To participate, learn about or to have this exhibition at your venue, please contact me at joan@thewomenspostcardproject.com.

Next year, 2020, is the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th amendment giving women the right to vote. It is our goal to give as many women as possible a voice, with the hope that our collective wisdom will inspire other women.

We are aiming for 1,000 plus postcards, but there is no limit! We need a village to help with this project! 

 There are 12 variations of the postcard, so each postcard is very important for the construction of the presentation.

 There are 6 different shades of pink - and 12 different postcards (with the position of the image either on the left or right).

 The mosaic formed by the different colors, image placement, different handwriting, drawing and ink color, represent the diversity and individuality of each woman. The entire wall when seen from a distance represents the strength, wisdom and beauty of women in general.

 Women from the age of 18 and up are invited to participate - to write, draw or collage – on the pink blank part of the postcard – something they would tell their younger selves. Something she wished she had known as a younger woman. 

The postcards are anonymous.  Each woman should sign only with her initials and age. We are going to do an analysis of the answers by age group.
