Women Supporting Women
Women Supporting Women
#WomenSupportingWomen is a new project launched by Martha Latta and Jo Ping of Sunday Afternoon Housewife. After attending a local speaker series and discussing together how important it is to truly support fellow female artists and working mothers, the idea of Women Supporting Women was conceived. #WomenSupportingWomen will gift 50% of sales from each shirt sold to a female artist to help the selected artist move their business a step forward.
For the months of July and August all online and show sales will benefit Emily Schwank of Raincliffs Photography.
Here's what Meagan has to say about being a part of #WomenSupportingWomen:
It is incredibly special to me to be a recipient of Women support women. Not just because the money- although that is really fantastic — there is some equipment I’ve wanted (particularly a certain lens) and this will help me so much. Having a larger family (yes we are a family of SEVEN means that my income from my photography services is very needed and it takes me longer to save up for new equipment!) It is also special because I believe in this SO DAMN MUCH. I am surrounded by the most amazing women, who help hold each other and sometimes when we don’t have the strength to stand, women who will sit beside us until we are ready. I hope I am a support to others as they have been to me.
More about Emily:
Emily has been known to characterize herself at unguarded moments as "stubborn, arrogant, smart, insecure, confident, curious, noisy, and a middle child." She has brown eyes, small wrists, and believes she walks too fast, which she uses as an ineffective excuse for her clumsiness. . This un-solitary life is formed by tragedy and beauty, love and anger, in equal doses. In this, Emily finds purpose: whether it is found in busy foreign streets, wild holy places, or her own back yard, she stumbles across images and finds them irresistible. She strives everyday to see, really see; it seems so many images of grace and tragedy slip by without acknowledgment because the world is unwilling to open its eyes -- not only to the obvious, but to the possible. While in a new place, all is strange and astounding and beautiful to her. When she returns home things become clearer: the torn curtain, the dingy wall, the beautiful, overgrown garden, the people in the city walking down the street who turn toward or away from each other in hope and agony. Despite situations and visions of a nation, a world, that seem increasingly dark, Emily retains an absurd and steadfast sense of optimism.

Use a mild detergent.
