About #smashthepatriarchy

The young girl in this painting is one of the Tchukudu Kids we raise funds for through The Art of Courage. The Tchukudu Kids are orphans who have somehow made their way to Goma to the open arms of The Tchukudu Kids Home.

I wanted to celebrate these girls because they hold the power within them to shift the culture and the society they have been born into.

The only way for our world to recover environmentally, economically and socially, is to support, empower, and educate young girls. We know this to be true, yet females continue to face inequality, violence and fear, especially in developing countries. #smashthepatriarchy

I want the viewer to feel her power, her confidence and to recognize her birthright, her human right.
