Knitting Women Roar…

Colorful Silk Sari Ribbon from Leilani Arts

Many times, I watch the news (okay, I confess I’m a total news geek) and I wonder what will happen to the women during a disaster, a war, and the everyday oppression that many face.  What are women doing worldwide to help themselves and other women? How are they coping?  Co-ops/collectives and the companies assisting them, are forming all over the globe to empower women in poverty, war torn areas, and in your own local neighborhoods.  Here’s a short list of art, knitting co-ops and orgs that devote their energy to helping women worldwide. There are more.  Look for one in your area if you’re inspired to help.

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt Strong Women Quotes
