Notes
"Wall of Femmes is a collective of feminists living in Montreal. Our aims are many: To promote wider recognition and knowledge of women we admire and find inspirational To assert the people's ownership of public space -- To counter the bombardment by mainstream media of negative, unhealthy, unattainable, sexist and/or objectified images of women in our public space -- To engage in the public discourse and contribute to the unique culture of our city in a meaningful way. The women we select to highlight come from all over the world and from diverse situations. Some are well known, some obscure, some controversial. They represent many different ideas and approaches, but all took control of their own lives, never asked permission and strove to eliminate inequality wherever they found it. With the Wall of Femmes collective, we try to carve out a space for these women, in a public place that is too often controlled by mainstream media. We want to acknowledge the way these women have improved our lives through their courage and hard work, and we are always open to suggestions on which inspirational women to feature on the blog, or in the street." -- Wall of Femmes website, http://www.walloffemmes.org/
