If the pandemic undid three decades of progress on gender equality, one has to wonder: How real was that progress in the first place?

'Where Are The Women?': Uncovering The Lost Works Of Female Renaissance Artists

A project that begun in 2009 to find female Renaissance artists in hidden attics of Florence or damp cells of churches,has uncovered and conserved about 2000 artworks made by women.

"It's a victory," Falcone says, "because we're saying, wow, we're at a point where the museums are starting to place value on the female part of their collection."

A nonprofit has identified 2,000 works by women artists that had been stashed in Italy's public museums and damp churches. It's also supported restoration of 70 works from the 16th to 20th centuries.

Dear fellow bicultural souls, women, creators, and change makers!
I am making a course on psychological transformation and healing of the restlessness and inner polarities of bicultural people. I am personally half Serbian and half Norwegian, a historian and facilitator of reframe therapy, meditations and healing for people without real belonging, and all sorts of other issues that we are just used to hide under the “blind eye” of mastery and coping.

But, it is now known that the main 3 causes of anxiety can all essentially be drawn back to the inner “programs” of - I’m not enough, I’m too different and thus I can’t connect, and the “good stuff” is not available to me.. The good stuff meaning - love, money, happiness, commitment, community, slim waist, health, inner peace, success, whatever.
And, when we think of it deeper, bicultural and multicultural people “naturally” have ALL these uprooting wounds within!
I have them myself, and have lived in 5 countries, speak 4 languages and have spent years and years learning and healing myself, in search of a home and belonging. We have no particular juridical protection either, as a group that de facto differ from the norm, and as such, like all other differing groups, we do experience discrimination in various forms. We are never truly ENOUGH of something, and we are always TOO MUCH of something else. In some places they want us to “go home”, but where is HOME?

Therefore, I have now made it my calling to raise awareness about this “issue”. I am making a hybrid, healing method consisting of analysis, and seeing things in a larger (historian’s) perspective, then reframe, forgive and with an effective meditation- let it go.
I want to help people be empowered by unifying the inner polarities and learning how to fully love and embrace the one-of-kind being we are. Rainbows. Bridges, who stretch over vast cultural landscapes and encompass all that in one soul.
If you wish to contribute in the fine tuning of the course, and receive a fee one-to-one session with me, I’d be very happy and grateful if you can fill out my survey. Here:
Let’s break this code! Let’s join forces and change our mindset and lives for good!
Hope to see you later!


This woman just keeps impressing and inspiring (me). A wonderful detail - the one terrorist they had is kept .nameless" to avoid giving him any additional energy.. amazing :)

"Kindness" is how she describes her political style. She changed her country's gun laws 10 days after a white supremacist terror attack, and has been praised for her management of the coronavirus crisis.

This is the story of New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

There are many excellent opportunities for learning and development for women entrepreneurs these days! This is one of them!

And, it was very liberating, knowledgeable, easy and productive! I recommend!

How to disarm a bully - and how we are allowing it if we don’t talk about it

The only way you can change how people treat you is by speaking up. If they treat you like sh*t, you need to tell them.

You make the rules for how people treat you. Standing up for yourself doesn’t make you mean or difficult-- no matter how much anyone else might tell you it does.

The people who get upset when you establish boundaries are always the ones who benefited from you having none. Share this with someone who needs to hear it ❤️

I’ve been listening to this woman for days now and the things she says make me feel wonderful! I know independently of most of the things she speaks of, and Ian so happy to hear it all put together and presented with such power, simplicity and fearlessness!

She is a world renowned Americans doctor for the female body especially, who for years have held a series of tv-shows, contradicting particularly the main steam, pharmacy-medicine, and is now “loose” 🔥👑✨🐲🙏🌿

Familija Leko, blisko vezana za kraljicu Nataliju, darivala je ne samo nameštaj nego i mnoge važne intelektualce i “influensere” doskorašnjeg zaista kulturnog srpskog drustva.

What do you know about the ancient Etruscans?

While we're all stuck at home, would you like to take a virtual trip into the heart of ancient Italy?

Maybe you’ve heard that the Etruscans inhabited Italy before the Romans, or that the Etruscans are somehow mysterious.

I’m Laura Morelli. I’m an art historian and author. I have always been curious about the ancient Etruscans and their art.

One of the things that fascinates me about Etruscan art is how lively and fun-loving the Etruscans seem in these images, and especially, how prominent and distinct the women appear.

I wondered what made Etruscan women special, so I went searching for answers... If you’d like to learn what I found out, then join me!

I’m offering a free online workshop about women in Etruscan art.

I’m so excited to take you on this virtual visit into the heart of ancient Italy with me!

The workshop is free and you can watch it from anywhere in the world.

If you’re an art lover, traveler, or a fan of Italy and Italian culture, then you’ll want to be there.

A virtual trip to Italy... It's what we're all longing for right now.

Ursula Le Guin, who was praised by the New York Times as bringing "literary depth and a tough-minded feminist sensibility to science fiction and fantasy," was born on this day in 1929. Famous for such works as The Left Hand of Darkness, The Dispossessed, and the Earthsea series, Le Guin, who died last year at the age of 88, was known for tackling complex and often challenging social issues in her work and frequently exploring themes of gender, race, and identity. She believed that writing that drew readers into the "inner lands" of the imagination could be a moral force, observing that "if you cannot or will not imagine the results of your actions, there’s no way you can act morally or responsibly. Little kids can’t do it; babies are morally monsters — completely greedy. Their imagination has to be trained into foresight and empathy.”

For readers who would like to delve into Ursula Le Guin's work, we highly recommend "The Dispossessed" (, "The Left Hand of Darkness (, "The Lathe Of Heaven" (, and The Earthsea series (

Three volumes of her lesser-known work have also recently been released: "The Found and the Lost: The Collected Novellas of Ursula K. Le Guin" (, "The Unreal and the Real: The Selected Short Stories of Ursula K. Le Guin" (; and "The Complete Orsinia", which collects her realistic fiction (

For teen readers interested in exploring her work, in her novel "Voices", Le Guin creates a world where books are forbidden and a young woman must decide what her role will be in a rebellion fomenting against the oppressive occupiers of her city -- recommended for ages 12 and up at
