My Project introduces beautiful, confident and independent women. Ideally, that's how we wish to see our mothers, sisters, daughters, friends, neighbours. In the USA, slavery was abolished over 150 years ago, and yet the human brain firmly keeps a century-old image - women, and black women in particular, will endure harassment and tolerate bullying, their main attributes remain dependency and vulnerability.
I hear you with my skin: Words can hurt. No matter how beautiful you are, how smart you are and how strong you are, there will always be someone to pierce you with a sword of painful words, no matter how thick your skin is.
