Women’s History Month

Our youth programs celebrated Women’s History Month with Art!

Parents and daughters took self portraits in “Rosie the Riveter” poses, with Rosie’s iconic red bow in their hair.  Families also learned about one of the historic founders of the Little Sisters of the Assumption, Antionette Fage.  Boys in the group made a beautiful collage, reflecting on what “Woman” means to them.  Their collage reflected images of strength and love.

All month, children in the after school program have been reading books about women who have had historic impact.  The person they enjoyed reading about the most was Malala Yousafzai – they were so impressed by her accomplishments in the face of adversity that some of the children asked if they could meet her.  Artist Liam Critt created a beautiful  wooden plaque with Malala’s image and an inspirational quote.
