Afghani and Australian Women Artists Books Collaboration

In 2009 a group of Australian women artists were invited by artist Gali Weiss to participate in a project that highlighted the plight of women in Afghanistan who had been denied the basic human right of an education. The project was intended to support them and SAWA (Support Association for the Women of Afghanistan.) Pictured above is the book Women with Wings, in which my linocuts are accompanied by a powerful and moving text by Majabeen.
