Wind power must be used to create the light and hope for empowering women throughout the globe. The power generated can be used to provide light for reading and learning, refrigeration, clean electrical cooking, and as well as a source for connection of TV and computers with the rest of the world. Wind will be an especially important source as it is available day and night, not just when the sun shines. Using this resource, the women in areas living in energy poverty will improve their daily lives, learning to keep their children healthy and improve the education of the community and thus improving their economic opportunities.

Through these three quilts I wanted to show the connection between wind technology and the light inside their homes, where women keep themselves and their families healthy, well fed and informed.

Dear Barbara,

Simply stunning, and a beautiful explanation of their relevance. Excited that your work is becoming known in wider circles. So sorry I couldn’t see the quilts hung in Geneva.

Warmest regards, Barbara
