For 2010, Antigone Magazine has released a special calendar with a certain Olympic flare.
“Twelve world-class female athletes from Canada and the U.S. have joined in creating the 2010 Dreams for Women Calendar, an inspiring calendar promoting women’s equality. These athletes, many of whom will be competing in the 2010 Olympic Games, have contributed their own “dreams for women” with personally designed art and words addressing issues as diverse as violence against women, the sexualization of female athletes, and the exclusion of women ski jumpers from Olympic competition.”
The calendar contains postcards by each of the contributors along with their photos and words, presented in a personal, handwritten manner. Each month is also highlighted with important dates in women’s history.
The calendars are $20 and available to order online or by emailing antigonemagazine [at] hotmail.com. There are also a few stores in Vancouver and Toronto that carry the calendar including Bookmark at the Vancouver Public Library.
The Antigone Foundation is an organization that seeks to encourage young women aged 10-35 to become politically and civically engaged. The Foundation also seeks to found a magazine written by and for young women aged 10-15, as well as, an outreach program to educate and inspire young girls to become active and involved in politics and issues that affect them. You can follow them on Twitter @AntigoneBlog.
