  1. hello there, it is very pleasing to hear about your collective. Maybe you would like to join us in our exhibition in July 2011. Please let us know if you would like to hear about details. You can email to 73women@phonecoop.coop

    we have the same aims as you do but i found it interesting that you use the word ‘female’ instead of ‘woman’ cause it feels as if we are only here for bearing or something…would be nice to chat.
    Thanks for creating a platform and look forward to hearing from you.Best wishes, Banu
