Women Wage Peace - mixed media graphic design by Michele Avanti
It has been said in every tribe around the world when the women come together there will be peace. I was inspired by a video of women in Israel, singing for peace and thus I am now on a mission to create art that can be worn to inspire women to wage peace. It is time.

The skirt is the second-oldest garment known to mankind. Only loin cloths predate it. And mankind is the right word to use because skirts haven't always been just for women.
"Men and women both wore skirts in ancient times. Once you had the initial idea of weaving a rectangle and tying it around yourself, you had basically the skirt. And if you look at say ancient, Egyptian paintings, you see men and women both wearing what's in effect a skirt," Steel explains.
Today, a skirt's design is all about personal style. But not long ago, long was the only way to go.
For hundreds of years, a long skirt was the very definition of luxury, mainly because fabric was so expensive.
"Women wore long skirts for centuries, mostly as a matter of modesty and prestige," Steel says.
Another sign of status and beauty: the narrowness of a woman's waist --so important that women would try to accentuate their waistlines by expanding the girth of their hips with hoops and petticoats, perhaps even a padded derriere.
You can still see this style from the 18th and 19th centuries in today's wedding gowns
