You may have heard of, or read “Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide” by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn. Women for Women International was featured in this bestselling book, and a new exhibition based on “Half the Sky” will be opening in Los Angeles at the Skirball Cultural Center this October.
The exhibition curators need your help!
The Skirball is collecting letters from Los Angeles-based Women for Women International sponsors and their sisters to display in the exhibition. They are looking for letters both to and from your sisters. High quality reproductions of the letters will be made, and the originals will be returned to you.
Visitors to the “Half the Sky” exhibition will have the opportunity to sponsor women through Women for Women International. Sharing your letters will help create a powerful and visual display of the work of Women for Women International.
Instructions for submitting letters:
1) Please send originals or high-quality scans (300dpi) to Jessica at the address below.
2) All originals will be returned. Please make sure to include your contact information with your submission.
3) Letters can be submitted anytime from now through August 2011 – earlier submissions will receive priority for inclusion in the exhibition.
4) Letters included in the exhibition will be selected for their variety, visual qualities, and content. Not all letters submitted are guaranteed to be displayed; Skirball staff will update you about the selections.
