March is 'Women's History Month' It recognizes and acknowledges amazing accomplishments by women. I decided to post Sarah, done in color pencils, a portrait of a 'slave' from Colonial times. Colonial Williamsburg has actors portraying and reenacting life from that period. I used my photographs as reference and wanted to highlight the spirit of survival and dignity she was exuding. She is one of the many unsung and unseen heroines of the world. This year's theme is 'Women taking the lead to save the world.' Its a tragedy that it is the 21st. century and women are still treated as slaves in many parts around the world. They bear the brunt of war and violence. Many never even get a chance to discover and nurture their talents. Isn't it time we all worked to change that?
