I tried to make each figure different and unique as all humans are. It was fun to do and also allowed me the time to come to know each one and what they want us to hear. The strength and wisdom of women's words that emerged from a crucible of fire and suppression must be taught to others, especially our daughters. We are the examples and carriers of that strength and wisdom. If we do not live and breathe and model it, we fail. Who can respect and believe in us if we are not willing to stand up and fight for our value? We must take and prove we are a powerful force to be dealt with and that we WILL NOT GO AWAY!
