Introducing: WE ARE WOMEN: CELEBRATING OUR WIT AND GRIT. This spunky, upbeat, and moving collection of photographs and quotations was created by June Cotner and Barb Mayer. In this post, Barb tells us more:
The idea for WE ARE WOMEN originated with June, who has always loved browsing through vintage greeting cards. Curious about what kind of lives these women led, she decided to develop a book that would feature vintage photos of women paired with inspiring as well as humorous quotes. Our goal was to create a book that would appeal to both younger and older women, one that would embody the best of the human spirit. We wanted to show how these positive characteristics have been handed down through generations of women.
WE ARE WOMEN is a celebration of womanhood. It shows that our ancestors were a far cry from the staid and serious portrait photos we often see in antique shops and history books. They were daring, innovative, and fun-loving. They were pilots, motorcycle riders, skiers, engineers, and political activists. Many were pioneers who paved the way for future generations of women to pursue careers that were traditionally dominated by men.
We hope that our book will inspire and uplift women, encouraging them to live their lives to the fullest.
