This painting is dedicated to women.
Everyday discrimination and
human rights violations against women are rooted in a patriarchal understanding
of masculinity and femininity. If this worldview persists, there can be no
peaceful societies based on equality, mutual recognition, and respect.
Gender-related discrimination can only be overcome if
women AND men break away from familiar role models and work together for gender
equality. It is both who must change their attitudes and question the
patriarchal balance of power, ways of thinking and behaving.
