Two years ago, the Women’s Center produced a popular “Calendar of Hope,” which asked participants to complete the phrase, “When Violence Against Women and Children Ends… I will…” This year, the calendar asks models, all connected with OSU, to describe a world in which sexism has ended.
Photographer Tina Buescher captured the spirit of each model in black and white. Participants included students, staff and faculty, all dreaming of a world without sexism.
“When sexism ends…women will have the chance to control their own destinies,” said Nahed Al Shareif and Fatimah Almousawi.
“When sexism ends… we will understand how to love each other,” Craig Bidiman said.“When sexism ends,” said Mamta and Saaya Accapadi, “the sky will no longer be the limit.”
Models include: Diane Davis, Craig Bidiman, Keisha Merchant, Barb Lachenbruch, Jessica Calhoun, Virginia Martin, Christian Mathies, Kate Sanders, Amanda Littke, Kryn Freehling-Burton, Ellen Momsen, Tonga Hopoi, Norma Cardenas, Fatimah Almousawi, Nahed Al Shareif, Gustavo Martinez-Padilla, Todd Simmons, Rebecca Chavez, Gita Ramaswamy, Mamta Accapadi, Courtney Strohmeyer, Beth Rietveld and the Women’s Center staff.
18-month Calendars are available at the OSU Women’s Center. Cost is $15. Checks should be payable to the “OSU Foundation.”
