Picture happiness. What do you see?
I came across this picture of an art exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. The exhibit is called “The Happy Show.” Through interactive installations, the show looks at several personal themes of happiness (what it is, how we get it, how we keep ourselves from feeling it).
So I thought, what if we modified that question a little and asked: What is your image of a happy woman? We talk about a lot of really important and very "heavy" subjects on the World Pulse platform. Topics such as gender-based violence and unfair treatment of women in the private and public spheres need to be approached with the thought-provoking and poignant testimonies that are shared on this platform. But, what if we - for a moment - imagined a world without any of these problems. A world where no woman was oppressed. What images does that bring to mind? Think of those happy and free moments in your life. What images come to you when you remember those moments?
Describe what your image of happy is. Or, share a picture or drawing or video. Get wild and creative! Delve into your most-inner happy.
