A profound TED talk by one of our American friends, Amy Logan. And yes, you guessed it, patriarchy is the root cause.

This art installation from Jennifer Bowman forms part of our set for the Patriarchy show, taking the performance beyond the stage and into the audience. Each artwork serves as a metaphor, and is referenced by the actors.

Statistics alone don't change anything. Only engaged hearts and minds that care deeply about the problem have any hope of affecting change. Highly creative, artistic forms of expression, like this movie, are the key to deep engagement.
In the southern part of Ethiopia, abducting children and forcing them into marriage is still a common practice. But advocates have found a unique way to change public opinion about this tradition: making and screening the award-winning film, Difret. #womenslives

Very Good, Ladies!
 
This is just a lovely, engaging and informative way to explore an issue that can be very complex, sensitive and divisive. How could you use this visual style within your own communication?
“Coming out of the closet” is big part of our lingo and understanding of the LGBTQIA+ experience. But do you know about the many different meanings of being “out” for different people? This comic breaks down what the concept of the closet really means, and shows how cis and straight people c

Don't miss out! Limited tickets available for these shows:
31 March – 5 April
6.30pm (all days)

Watch humanity’s most dysfunctional system pricked, unpicked and put out to pasture. Witness the merciless lampooning of beliefs and behaviours that are ruining our planet.

Within a fast-paced sketch format, this sophisticated, satirical show explores then explodes the toxic nature of patriarchal systems that dominate global societies, economies and the environment.

Drawing on the artistic strengths of its creators, the show blends a variety of contemporary concepts from both the visual and performing arts.

The show has been created by the founding family of ‘Wise Women Will Save the World’ (Healing our planet by amplifying the influence of women). One of the community’s major goals is to improve communication and engagement around complex, sensitive issues through non-linear, highly creative and artistic forms of expression.

What a pity this show gets mainstream media attention, and our show lampooning patriarchy gets none. http://ow.ly/L6HXN

Monday is Opening Night for our satirical show, Patriarchy – Where Would We Be Without You? This large artwork of Jennifer's features in the set, and represents the notion of 'escaping control'. Patriarchy is all about control, command and suppression. Around the world, people are increasingly pushing back against these forces; women, indigenous peoples, other marginalised groups, even consumers and employees, are saying 'Enough is Enough'.

The world is dominated by patriarchal forces that try to restrict freedom of thought and expression ... that try to control the way we spend our time and money ... that try to manipulate our interactions with the world and each other.

That's why, from March 30 to April 5, we'll be putting patriarchy to the sword.

The rise of Dalit women worldwide is one of the finest and most inspiring examples of dignity and determination triumphing over despair and discrimination.

Healing our planet by amplifying the influence of women.
Introduction
This page showcases effective techniques of influence that wise women use to spread their message, empower others and bring about change, in order to move our planet towards a state of environmental and social sustainability.

The world’s largest source of renewable energy is the untapped potential of women and girls. Everywhere we are hearing the declaration, 'Enough is Enough', as women voice their collective discontent and anger at the hand they have been dealt in a world dominated by masculine values.

Adopting a more feminine, holistic and nurturing approach to the entire planet is part of a huge trend that will mould the zeitgeist for decades to come.

We are currently seeing the emergence of a global movement that merges three key phenomena:
• The empathic nature of girls and women
• Collective human wisdom
• Digital technology


This movement will be lead by ‘wise women’, who will fully exploit this timely fit between empathy, wisdom and the digital revolution. The essence of empathy and wisdom is invisible, a product of mind and spirit. As such, it can be rapidly shared and amplified across the globe via digital means.

This community has been established by Jennifer and Graeme Bowman.
