A Chat with the San Francisco Women’s Building

I just saw this post and loved seeing the the mural on the San Francisco Women’s Building that is captured in great photos by Robert M. Goldstein. As per the post I am reblogging, “The Mission of the Women’s Building is based on the premise that all women and girls have the right to safe, joyous and creative lives; lives in which they have the right of self-determination.” Here, here!

I call this post a ‘chat’ with the San Francisco Women’s Buildingbecause when I view the mural I feel as if I’m in a conversation about community, personal responsibility, a positive vision of the future, and the joy of creative collaboration.

  1. Great mural and initiative coming from the San Francisco Women’s building…. / “A building owned and exclusively operated by women~!”… Wow, that’s outstanding-… Sending Love and Best wishes, dear Christy. Aquileana 🌠

  2. Beautiful share, Christy. Lovely set of murals and they certainly carry a strong message to empower women. Love the fact that behind the murals, women are at work designing and putting them all together. Art can give anyone the chance to stand up, showcase their passion and make them feel a sense of purpose 🙂

  3. I enjoyed this post a lot, Christy. The murals are outstanding, so vibrant and diverse and loving; and the women’s building has been equally outstanding as a safe and inspiring place for all kinds of women. Thanks for sharing Rob’s post.

  4. Yes, every women must have freedom and self-determination. I liked the paintings also!
    However, there are a lot of women that does not have the right of “self-determination”.
    Best, Tânia.
