Women Past


A Woman of Strength, A Woman of Value
Diane Dettmann,
“The universe is made of stories, not of atoms.” Muriel Rukeyser.


My grandmother holds no awards recognizing her accomplishments. Her name is not embossed on a star in Hollywood or etched on a granite memorial wall. Yet like many women of the past, she made valuable contributions to the quality of her family’s life and to the lives of others. Sharing stories of the strength and perseverance of everyday women of the past inspires women of today to see the value in their own lives.

The important aspects requiring consideration when searching for female artists are numerous; all are within the restraints that her society imposed upon her sex. Basically, throughout history, women were to produce children, not art, or they were confined to the tasks of their home (Slatkin 44).
