International Women’s Day 2016:
A Message by UN Women’s Executive Director
Hola a todos!
I’m back at home again.
Hubby came to Málaga for a short vacation and
we came back home together.
Here in Helsinki evenings are brighter again – today sunset is at 8:11 pm.
And no snow!!! 🙂
We visited El Centro de Arte Contemporáneo de Málaga (CAC).
Here are a few paintings of Paco Sanguino’s collection.
I like these a lot – how about you? Do you like this type of art?
Shadows, painted shadows! 🙂
Have a relaxing weekend!
Theme for International Women’s Day 2012:

SPARK – Sexualization Protest: Action, Resistance, Knowledge
What is SPARK?
SPARK stands for Sexualization Protest: Action, Resistance, Knowledge.
SPARK is both a Summit and a Movement
designed to push back
against the increasingly sexualized images of girlhood in the media

SPARK will engage teen girls to be part of the solution
rather than to protect them from the problem.
