Today is International Womens Day and I will be celebrating together with my community of Swedish Ladies, SveaBritt, and guests by listening to the CEO of the Tate group, Kertin Mogull, at our annual springdinner on this very special day. She will speak about how to take Tate and their musuems into the future and female leadership of today!

Idéen till motivet kom efter jag installerat en utställning på Svenska Institutet förra februari, strax efter massakern på Charlie Hebdo....och jag färdigställde bilden den dagen efter nästa attack i Paris i november..... Jag funderade helt enkelt på om planeten skulle vara en fredligare plats om fler kvinnor satt vid makten....bilden heter “Liberté, égalité, maternité”, dvs “Frihet, jämlikhet och moderskap”.  "The idea to this poster came after an installation at the Swedish Institute in Paris last February, just after the massacre on Charlie Hebdo...and I finished the picture the day after the next attack in Paris in November...I was simply wondering if the planet would be a more peaceful place if more women were at "the seat of power"...the poster is named "Liberté, égalité, maternité, i.e. "Freedom, equality and motherhood"... Poster and graphic design by Maria Holmer Dahlgren, formerly working with the stationery retailer "Ordning & Reda" etc and now a freelancer. This poster are perfect for today since we have not got there yet, i.e. equality has a long way to go, still...
