The unique physical capabilities of the female body are profound, life altering and empowering; but more than these, the participating artists interpret the current concerns, dialogues, and the reexamination of the feminine role. This exhibit aimed to identify the role of feminism and its shifting notions from the present to the future. Feminism in the 21st century carries a huge and deeper, more diverse range of voices and interests than ever before. The works endeavoured to develop a discourse around cultural conditioning and societal implications of being a woman in this contemporary period and looking into the generations ahead.
Zonta is an international club of women in business and the professions empowering women worldwide. In the Philippines, the Zonta Club of Makati & Environs (ZCME) has been helping to empower Filipinas and their communities through its service projects and advocacies for over 48 years. Some of the organization’s noteworthy projects include the award-winning Zonta International Psychological Center in Marillac Hills for abused women and girls, EWSP Scholarship for women in the field of Science, Health Nutrition and Hygiene Project, to name a few.
This meaningful exhibit presented by Zonta intends to honor
women in the arts and link the artists’ personal works to a community service platform that promotes “Empowering Women Through Service and Advocacy”, as the foundation’s slogan also entails.
