Guyana Cultural Association of New York – March Newsletter

Guyana Cultural Association of New York – March Newsletter

WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH

 CELEBRATING  Guyanese Women Who Inspire

As this edition of our newsletter developed, the media team was reminded of a subtext to its main theme, Celebrating Women. It is only possible, within the limits of this newsletter, to highlight portions of the theme. However, as you read this March issue, do remember woman as mother, woman as the channel of new life. In this season of Lent we try to examine our lives as we move towards the Crucifixion and death and the reason for its occurrence: life. The festival of Phagwah heralds life triumphing over the threat of destruction.

This issue celebrates woman within the context of intertwining of the beginning and the end and all the glorious madness in between.

Our theme: Women.              Our subtext: Life.
