‘Woman Defined’ – An Explanation Using One Word and One Photo
By Evelyn Hannon, Founder, JourneyWoman
The inspiration for this year’s photography exhibit is a direct result of the tawdry findings that fueled the #MeToo movement. As I watched events unfold in the media my mind kept going to a place far away from the stories I was being told. That is … A woman is made up of so many strong and beautiful facets that are overshadowed by the emphasis on the shape of her body. It was then that I knew what this year’s exhibit would be about.
And the photographs from around the world began arriving accompanied by words like:
I hope you will enjoy this exhibit of 35 photos as much as I enjoyed putting it together.
I congratulate each one of the photographers. Your entries make me proud to be a woman.

For International Women’s Day 2021, we celebrate the wisdom of women, with Evelyn’s photographs and books as a source of inspiration.
In celebration of International Women’s Day (IWD) on March 8, we asked our JourneyWoman community to share their photos of women, mothers and daughters from around the world and share the stories behind the photos.
I recently spied a playful sign in a craft market that read, ‘Who Runs The World… Girls Do!’ I bought one of those signs for each one of my granddaughters to inspire them to work hard and to demand the gender equality they need, want, and deserve.
