For the Artists Who Like to Remain Strictly Out of the Box

Letter from the Editor

March is International Women’s History Month.  I think when we think about celebrating the history of women we can not do so without honoring their strength, their willpower, their tenacity, their perseverance, their words, and their power.  Throughout history so many women have helped to shape this world and the arts into what it has become today and we should never forget that.

Women have been displaying their strength and their power, even modestly so, for centuries, dating back to the bible with Mary and the Daughters of Zelophehad (Numbers 27: 1-11), up until now with influential women such as Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton.  Women have come such a long way and no longer have to quietly contribute to the world.  They no longer have to hide their various capabilities and their yearning to be front and center and instead be forced to walk on the sidelines or even worse, be placed on the back burner.

I think that not only have our first lady and our former secretary of state proved that, but also names like Oprah Winfrey, Sheryl Sandberg (COO of facebook), Beyonce Knowles-Carter, Debre Lee (CEO of BET), Chondra Rhimes (creator of the hit television shows Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, and new sensation Scandal), J.K. Rowling, and the list could go on for miles.

So I wanted to dedicate this issue to women and the power that they possess, that they don’t often realize that they possess, and not only the power in our actions but also in our words.  All of the articles and content in this issue are by women including the interview with Ms. LaMonique Hamilton (who I think we’ll be adding to that list of influential women in no time), who is an author and up and coming media mogul.  I hope that you ladies out there enjoy this issue and that you celebrate your power, your strength, and your words.

Uniquely Yours,

Your Editor
