Fighting For Dr. Muhammad Yunus, Against Mike Fitzpatrick, Against Sex Trafficking & Against Personhood Bills

Anne of Carversville and GlamTribale are on the road today, popping up at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women at the Philadelphia Convention Center.

This 10’x10’ shop comes just eight days after our Mt. Airy event was a wonderful financial, marketing and PR success. Our Mt. Airy event, following our earlier gallery stay at Karen Riggs’ Tribal Home, gave us the opportunity to both improve our game and better articulate our GlamTribale progressive values.

First and foremost, GlamTribale jewelry is an opportunity for me to stand publicly for women worldwide and also in Pennsylvania. It gives me the opportunity to ‘walk my talk’, not only study and articulate the intersections of women’s rights, religion, sexual politics, business and humanitarianism.

At GlamTribale, my personal beliefs and those of Robert, Zuwena, Ben and Cat are reflected in the way we do business. There is no doubt that we stand for progressive values and especially we stand for women worldwide — with a few exceptions.

Standing for Dr Muhammad Yunus

If you haven’t read Nicholas D. Kristof’s recent column ‘Women Hurting Women’, you must. Dr Muhammad Yunus is the founder of Grameen bank and the women’s microfinance movement. He is a nobel laureate and a revered fighter in the global movement to empower women.

As Kristof reminds us, women can be just as contemptible as men, in their exercise of power.

Sheikh Hasina’s government has already driven Yunus from his job as managing director of Grameen Bank. Worse, since last month, her government has tried to seize control of the bank from its 5.5 million small-time shareholders, almost all of them women, who collectively own more than 95 percent of the bank.

Standing Against Mike Fitzpatrick

Anne of Carversville, GlamTribale jewelry and I stand against Mike Fitzpatrick, the Republican incumbent defending his Congressional seat against Kathy Boockvar in PA’s 8th congressional district, the place where Anne of Carversville was sounded.
