women supporting women: october 11, 2012 in florence

Women Supporting Women

MARK IT ON YOUR CALENDAR !

Every two days a woman is killed in Italy as a result of domestic violence. Despite this, there are no national laws that deal with domestic violence. It is time that we started talking about this. It is time that we show women who have the courage to break free and rebuild a life free of abuse that we support them.

On October 11, 2012 we are going to do just that. Come join us for an evening of women coming together to support women who have been victims of domestic violence.

Women artisans, both expat and Italian, will come together for a show and sale with 10% of the proceeds going towards a public awareness campaign through Artemisia; an organization that has been helping women and children who have been victims of domestic violence since 1991.Please bring your partners and friends to this very special aperitivo as a portion of the 10 euro fee will go directly to Artemisia.  Tickets on sale at the Paperback Exchange.

Help spread the word about this event – Thursday October 11, 2012 starting at 6:30 pm at Casa della CreativitaVicolo di Santa Maria Maggiore, 1-red (near the Duomo) – with the artisans continuing to show on October 12, 2012.

I will be there with new pieces available – don’t miss this event!
