GlamTribale May 22-24 At Philadelphia Art Museum With PHAIR

Greetings from Anne.

Many of you have expressed concerns about my state of mind and general health. If you visit us this week May 22-24 in front of Philadelphia’s Museum of Art, you will find me alive, vivacious and thinner by another eight pounds.

My determination to return to my 2003/4 weight is fierce and I have lost over 40 pounds since July 2011 with 13 to go. Meanwhile, the injury that caused this miserable weight gain heals better every week, and I’m back on the treadmill at 3.7 mph, headed back to 4.7.

In truth, digging out from the death of my business partner Robert Rothschild has been enormously challenging. For all his wonderful traits, Robert’s ability to stay organized was always a challenge. Writing down details, key account info and passwords was even more challenging for him to execute.

Reality brought me to my knees about two weeks ago, when I went to GlamTribale.com and found it to be a GoDaddy parking lot url. Robert didn’t set the account to auto-renew and he attached an email addy to the url that I haven’t used in seven years. I was astonished over this new reality and frankly, still haven’t recovered from the moment when I felt the sky was falling.

Until I can buy it back at a reasonable price, you will find us at GlamTribale.org. I also bought GlamTribale.net — astonished also that Robert didn’t buy the trio as rule #1 of domain ownership.

With multiple broken links to reconfigure, I will be a busy woman this week. But DO come and see our great new products at PHAIR’s Artisan Market May 22-24 in front of the Philadelphia Art Museum.

Sending love to all. ~ Anne

What a luminous week we’ve had for human rights! In support of our advocacies for women’s rights, Anne opened the largest GlamTribale shop (so far) at Teaberry on April 7, following a terrific weekend show at Ocean City. In the US, it’s the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act in the US. On April 8, in the Philippines, we finally received news— after waiting for over 15 years— of the activation of our Reproductive Health Law.

Half a century after the Civil Rights Act, we continue to grapple with discrimination issues today. The evolution of communication and travel technologies provides us with more opportunities to learn about people who are different from us, but also provides new environments and contexts for clashing. It’s up to us to use our technology and creativity wisely, to enrich our relationships and evolve holistically. We envision a future in which discrimination is obsolete:

Women In The World, unite! This proactive project celebrates women all over the world who deserve our attention and admiration, reminding us that we are beyond beautiful. We are brilliant, passionate, compassionate, courageous, resilient, powerful— words that need to be used more often when we compliment one another. There’s nothing wrong with gushing over a sister’s nice new ‘do or bodacious figure, but we do need to pu t due focus on inner beauty as well.

Tina Brown, in time for the ongoing Women In The World summit, questions the amount of mainstream media mileage given to women just for being hot and famous. Why the fixation on physical beauty and social capital? Why not also feature more women for being ingenious, or brave, or kind, or all the other wonderful things we can be?

“These are the truly cool women in the world, and more and more I find them in places that most of the media no longer has the budget to seek out. I’m thinking of Manal al-Sharif, the ravishing young Saudi businesswoman in the white silk hijab who defied the driving ban and wound up arrested. She’s cool. And Khalida Brohi, the 25-year-old Pakistani spitfire who drives alone around rural villages in Pakistan, telling hostile turbaned misogynists why their daughters should go to school. She’s cool. And Claire Byarugaba, the soft-spoken 26-year-old campaigner for Uganda’s gays, who continues to risk her life even after she was outed by Red Pepper, a Ugandan tabloid, in the witch hunt now sweeping the African continent. She’s fierce and she’s gentle—and she’s cool. The Ukrainian pop star and former MP Ruslana, who belted out the national anthem in Maidan Square under the guns of special forces troops and calmed protestors? She’s awesome as well.” - Tina Brown

Recently, my friends, the twin sisters Danah and Stacey of The Plump Pinay— pioneers of the body acceptance movement here in the Philippines— spoke out about this same issue:

The point is not to villify physical beauty, but to remove it from the center of popular portrayals and discussions about women. Society is fixated on women’s physical beauty— which is indeed captivating!— but it is just one aspect of our beauty, when we should be celebrating the whole. Brian Swimme has written about the dangers of this form of extremism:

“Anyone who grabs a sliver of beauty and insists that it is the whole becomes a fanatic, workaholic, cynic, fundamentalist, or drug addict. To break the tension of living in a universe rich in allurements is to move toward the needless destruction of pursuing a partial vision. The glory of the human is also the difficulty of the human. Precisely because we are able to feel such beauty, we are simultaneously vulnerable to the addiction of fanaticism in any of a million forms.” - Brian Swimme

Swimme’s words also illuminate the link between this fixation of beauty, and extremists’ worldwide oppression of women. One of our favourite American heroines, Hillary Clinton, observes that extremists always seem to focus on women:

Another American leader, Jimmy Carter, has just written A Call To Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power. When asked by Manuela Hoelterhoff about dealing with the “incredible numbers and the violence”, Carter’s response correctly identified that it’s the system of oppression (and its agents) that are to blame, and not women: “We need to emulate what Sweden has done. They punished the johns, the pimps and the brothel owners. They don’t punish the girls.”

Anne has written about Carter before, in Jimmy Carter on Religion As Agent of Women’s Oppression. Patriarchal religion has always, throughout history, systematically displaced and put down women. It certainly has all the wealth and power in the world to do so. Are we dreaming to hope that this might change someday? If religion can evolve and actually restore women to our rightful place of equality, then that vast power would be for the good. We are one with Carter in “calling on all those with influence to challenge and change the harmful teachings and practices – in religious and secular life– that justify discrimination against women and to acknowledge and emphasize the positive messages of equality and human dignity.”

At AnneOfCarversville and GlamTribale, we believe in being beyond beautiful. GlamTribale’s largest store yet will open at The Marketplace at Teaberry on April 7, right after a busy weekend at the 2014 Spring Festival of Fine Arts and Crafts on April 5 and 6 at Historic Ocean City Music Pier Boardwalk. We are proud to say that GlamTribale jewelry and artworks are not just beautiful, but also ethical and sustainable, as well as empowering. Senna— a young Peruvian poet named among the 2014 List Of Women Of Consequence In The World— inspires us with her passion for creativity and education.

Growing GlamTribale’s business success means we are able to give more to our advocacies, including Shining Hope Foundation’s Kibera School of Girls in Africa:

This sunny photo from the Kibera School of Girls never fails to make us smile!

As women who are beyond beautiful, let’s use our prolific talents to change the world for the better. Stay tuned as we continue to make herstory!

Happy birthday to the face of feminism! The glorious Gloria Steinem spent her 80th birthday bonding with elephants in Botswana. We at GlamTribale adore elephants! How wonderful to see think of Gloria Steinem and elephants— both icons of feminism— together. Women lead in elephant society, and Anne has written about these wild symbols of feminine power in Elephants Are Matriarchal and Kind to Females in the Animal World | Stop the Republican Disgrace of Elephants.

Gloria Steinem by Rachel Sumpter; GlamTribale Elephant Ceramic Art Tile or Trivet

“Steinem occupies a singular place in American culture. In the 1960s and 1970s, the whole concept of women’s place was transformed — discrimination was outlawed, hearts and minds were opened. In the history of our gender, this might have been the grandest moment. There were all kinds of reasons that the change happened at that particular time, and a raft of female leaders who pushed the movement along. But when people think about it, Gloria Steinem is generally the first name that pops up. She’s the face of feminism.” - Gail Collins, NYTimes

Despite being a global icon who is constantly on the go, Steinem is known and loved for remaining refreshingly down-to-earth and approachable:

“More than a half-century into her life as an international celebrity, she remains stupendously approachable, patient with questions, interested in revelations. When she goes to events, young women flock around her. All celebrities draw crowds, of course. The difference is that when Steinem is at the center, she’s almost always listening.” - Gail Collins, NYTimes

Speaking as a young woman— I am so inspired by Steinem’s luminous perspective on aging (she loves it!). I hope to be like her someday.

In 2011, Anne saw Steinem (along with Gloria Hill and Eve Ensler) in NYC at the “Sex, Power and Speaking Truth: Anita Hill 20 Years Later” press conference. Anne calls us all to action in Arise! Will Young Women Join Anita Hill, Gloria Steinem & Eve Ensler in the Republican War on Women?

My answer, Anne, is YES! And I hope that many others join us too— old, young, men, women, LGBT. The war to reclaim our rights over our own bodies still has a long way to go and there’s still so much work to be done. In Believing in Birth Control Doesn’t Make Me Un-American | 2Ps in a Pod, Anne spoke about the dire lack of sexual health rights in my own home country, The Philippines.

“I had just watched a PBS segment on family planning in the Philippines. In it the Catholic bishop spoke aggressively against controlling population, saying that it was fine that women have as many children as possible. We both know the Catholic Church believes it is a woman’s duty. It’s the world’s challenge to figure out how to feed all these babies, not for women to have fewer children argues the bishop who has never had a baby in his life. It’s so easy for the bishop to say a woman should have 12 children. There is no concern about maternal mortality with the bishop. There was a scene of women lying in the maternity ward in the Philippines with babies everywhere. They can’t get proper care. Yet there is no concern about a better life for the children that already exist and the mother herself in the bishop’s words. Science tells us that the food supplies especially the fishing stocks in the region are severely depleted. But the bishop says babies, babies, we need more babies. Women must make babies. It is our duty. Women are incubators and that’s the end of it. We can write all these nice words and phrases about the sanctity of women, but at the end of the day when any discussion about women’s freedoms as human being arise, we are put in our place.” - Anne

It’s been over a year since the enactment of the RH (Reproductive Health) Law in the Philippines, but we are still waiting for its implementation. In fact, the enactment process alone took 14 years of battling strong opposition from the Catholic Church! The Supreme Court issued an indefinite restraining order on the RH Law last year thereby “reinforcing a status quo where 11 women die every day due to lack of access to reproductive health services”, according to the law’s co-author Risa Hontiveros, human rights activist and Nobel Peace Prize nominee. Her fellow co-author, Miriam Defensor Santiago, Judge of the International Criminal Court and Senator, calls the lack of the RH Law sheer cruelty.

Both Hontiveros and Santiago have emphasized that reproductive health rights are universal human rights. They’ve called out those who claim to be “pro-life” while ignoring the rights of women. They’ve also called out the Catholic Church in the Philippines for amassing opposition against RH by leveraging people’s ignorance.

“If the bill is highly controversial, it is not because it is dangerous to humans or to the planet. The reason this bill is emotionally charged is because of the fervent opposition of the Catholic Church in the Philippines.” - Miriam Defensor Santiago on CNN: Leave no woman behind: Why we fought for Reproductive Health Bill

“We freely, in an informed manner, responsibly and joyfully, decide about our bodies. No one else can or should do that for us. We choose life, we embrace its every cycle, from birth and girlhood to the childbearing years to menopause or climacterium and then death. We want each and every sister to have a chance at that fullness of life.” - Risa Hontiveros in an open letter responding to the Catholic Church in the Philippines

We need more women warriors in the world. I am very lucky to have so many of them in my family, including my mom (Ginggay Hontiveros), and my aunt (Risa Hontiveros). It is with great pleasure that I close this issue of Engage by showcasing my mom’s glorious nude paintings. Thank you to Anne for inviting me to include them here. As an artist and art enthusiast, I especially enjoy seeing women artists paint female nudes. To me, this is a symbolic creative act of women reclaiming their rights over their bodies.

At AnneOfCarversville and GlamTribale, we wholeheartedly honor women warriors and hope to cultivate more of them through the power of education. GlamTribale’s largest store yet will open at The Marketplace at Teaberry on April 7, right after a busy weekend at the 2014 Spring Festival of Fine Arts and Crafts on April 5 and 6 at Historic Ocean City Music Pier Boardwalk. By growing GlamTribale’s business success, we are able to give more to our advocacies, including Shining Hope Foundation’s Kibera School of Girls in Africa:

Anne, the one-woman army behind AnneOfCarversville and GlamTribale, is taking time to reflect on life priorities and to honor the memory of her best friend, Robert Rothschild. The courage and grace with which he faced cancer is an inspiration. His legacy also lives on in GlamTribale’s mission of empowerment. We are now mainly focused on growing GlamTribale and nourishing our advocacy, while AnneOfCarversville may revert to being centered on personal, reflective writings.

“I’ve decided to seriously cut back my involvement in my seven-year website Anne of Carversville. I will continue to post, but there will be a much greater reflection on my personal stories and experiences. This was the original intention of Anne of Carversville — to speak about the intersection of brains, sexuality, women’s rights, activism and philanthropy.” - Anne

Meet Us At 100% Handcrafted March 15 At Robbinsville High School

GlamTribale joins our good friends Barb and George Thompson and over 100 more artisans and crafters for the eighth year RHS 100% Handcrafted cutting edge arts and crafts fair on Saturday, March 15, 2014 from 10am-3pm at Robbinsville High School in Robbinsville, New Jersey.

“This always anticipated juried event prides itself in hosting only the finest crafters in the area,” says Cindy Rosen, chairperson. Rosen expects attendance of 700 shoppers from several mid-Atlantic states.

RHS Raven Players100% Handcrafted benefits the RHS Raven Players theater students and the Raven Regiment band students.

Given our last minute application, we are so grateful to participate in 100% Handcrafted, lending our support to artistry in American youth. I’ve written before that my seventh grade art teacher moved me into a pilot project math class, telling me is was for my own because “you have no creativity.” I believed her for decades. ~ Anne
