June 26 – September 8, 2019
I have long contemplated issues of equality for women, which started for me when the first issue of MS magazine hit the stands in 1971. Now, how many decades later (?), we still have to fight to hold onto rights, and work for equality across the board for all women. Using the song by Salt-N-Pepa called, “Ain’t Nuthin but a She Thing” as my inspiration, I present this collection of women centric images and ideas and words.
Lyrics by Salt-N-Pepa:
“It’s a she thing, and it’s all in me
I could be anything that I want to be!
Don’t consider me a minority.
Sensitive and sweet, yeah, all that good stuff
But when it’s time to get rough, baby, I’m rough enough.
Ain’t afraid to show how I feel down deep
Compassionate but don’t underestimate me!
I’m intelligent, wise, complicated being
With an instinct to dream and believe in the dreams
Family’s first before anybody else (believe that),
Take care of them before I take care of self.
I’m a genuine feminine female thang.
Can you hang? Ain’t nothin’ but a she thang.”
