Freedom/Hope

This digital art is dedicated to the 300-odd young schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram in Nigeria. The lack of action within Nigeria and the international community to find and release these young women from their captors is an absolute disgrace.

The images in this digital art represents the strength of their parents in organising to fight for their return; the hope of the parents and community that these young girls can be freed from their captors; and it represents the determination of women around the world to support action for these young women’s freedom, and to stand up for equal rights, education and respect.

  1. I admire you speaking out on this issue. We are living it. In addition to this abduction, there’s been nearly a half dozen bombings in the capital city and the Northern region.

    • We live in North Cyprus and see news about Nigeria on BBC World News which reports quite a bit on what is happening. It must be hard living with bombings and the abduction of those school girls. You may not have seen it, but there is a lot of support for action in social media, people are outraged that 300 girls can get kidnapped, that Boko Haram can boast about selling these poor schoolchildren and the government and army twiddle their thumbs. I wish you well and hope you are able to live a good life despite the challenges.

  2. I’m 66, but I do have purple hair! I think people have forgotten what the original “crone” meant. It came from the crown chakra or energy centre which is linked to spiritual wisdom, and women who have gone through the menopause are considered wise women or crones. Not that I can lay claim to a lot of wisdom!!!!
