Art Title: Stronger Together
Description: Strong leadership means connection with your community, and connection with your inner wisdom and intuition. If patriarchal power is structured like a vertical hierarchy, matriarchal leadership is structured horizontally. It means power is shared communally, everyone is taken care of, and everyone's voice is heard. Like a mosaic, a community is made of many different and diverse individual pieces to create a unified whole. To lead like a girl means to listen, to have compassion, to trust yourself, and to allow the wisdom of your ancestors and love for your people be your guides.
