Women's Empowerment Project

History is authored through the perspective of Western man,

which leads to altering or completely omitting truths that do not benefit his image or view. 

The Women’s Empowerment Project is a series dedicated to revealing excluded “herstories”,

teaching hidden strengths, and encouraging people to think more critically about their influences. 

The posters represent women who exemplify strength and progress. 

The accompanying flyers and condensed history books include additional facts and add context. 

Self-publishing prints and books is a historically democratic practice and has long been used to disseminate, propagate, advocate and give voice to the people – ultimately leading to understanding and progress.
