Join MOTIVE artists Christa Assad, Pamela Merory Dernham, Bella Feldman, Iris Polos, and moderator Dewitt Cheng for a conversation focused on women’s voices and war. The panel will discuss and reveal the perspectives of those who are frequently left out, quieted, and often more empathetic, in the conversations regarding war.
Feminine energy is breaking out around the world. Women are taking control as political leaders and active fighters in the military and rebel groups. But while the number of current female leaders – excluding monarchs and figureheads – has more than doubled since 2000, most of the world’s nations have never been led by a woman (Pew Research Center, March 8, 2017). You are already familiar with what happens when men are in power. Male energy has led to endless wars, to mass destruction and devastation of the planet and its natural resources, to genocide. It is time for change and for the feminine energy to take the lead. -Christa Assad, artist statement for MOTIVE.
