The WOMEN ON THE RISE! program addresses issues of self-esteem and positive choices through the study of contemporary women artists who deal with issues of body image, identity and female empowerment in their work. Works on display were created by WOMEN ON THE RISE! program participants at Homestead Job Corps of the Department of Labor, The Village Rehabilitation Clinic, and the Thelma Gibson Health Initiative Girls’ Group.
