Wild Weekly Photo Challenge: Black and White / Travel Theme: International Womens’ Day

“Women hold up half the sky.”

Mao Zedong

This week we celebrate International Womens’ Day, which is the subject of Ailsa’s Travel Theme.  Since the Wild Weekly Photo Challenge this week is Black & White, I’ve combined the two themes by presenting some of my favorite black and white shots of the grandmothers, mothers, sisters and daughters of Southeast Asia.

“The test of civilization is its estimate of women.”

George William Curtis

While the role of today’s women may be multi-faceted, and our status may vary widely from one country to another, there can be no argument about our importance in shaping the next generation.

“Women love always: when earth slips from them, they take refuge in heaven.”

George Sand

“Is solace anywhere more comforting than in the arms of a sister?”

Alice Walker

“There is a woman at the beginning of all great things.”

Alphonse de Lamaratine

I will close with a hope that some day all sisters, whether related by blood or simply by gender, may enjoy their childhoods, find  contentment throughout their lives, and grow old gracefully, surrounded by love in a world filled with peace.

  1. Thank you for the beautiful post, Tina! I share with your hope and wish women are “surrounded by love in a world filled with peace” — well said!

      • Absolutely! It does take maturity to not being self-centered and self promoting, and I have very little tolerance for that. Making a difference for the less fortunate is another level and is my personal goal…
