A quiet revolution is taking place around the world led by women artisan cooperatives. Empowering Women: Artisan Cooperatives that Transform Communities provides an intimate view of several artisan cooperatives that are taking the initiative to collectively produce, manage and market their art. The result of these collaborations have enriched the lives of the women involved and made them powerful forces in their communities, enabling them to survive and thrive. Empowering Women was the inaugural exhibit in the newly created Gallery of Conscience at the Museum of International Folk Art.
