My Arctic Charade Series

Fighting Females

With her new series of works entitled Fighting Females Preta Wolzak honours a group of women who achieved enormous progress for their families, their village, their country, their world. Some were instrumental in improving the economy, the environment, and science. Some fought for women's rights, the position of women with AIDS, and against female genital mutilation, and scarification. Others worked hard to promote peace, or to stand up for the liberation of gay or transgender people. None of these women received sufficient recognition for their work, mainly because they were women. They were often not appreciated for their accomplishments, or even ignored and humiliated. Some sacrificed their freedom or even lost their life. 2018
