Attitude Positive
Aujourd’hui, les jeunes femmes sont intimement conscientes des problèmes auxquels le monde est confronté : guerre et violence, dégradation de l’environnement, VIH/SIDA et pauvreté.

Mais au lieu de se plaindre ou d’être désespérées à propos des choses, elles cherchent activement des solutions. Armées de nouvelles ressources, de leur créativité et d’une attitude positive, elles sont motivées et déterminées à amener un changement.

Soyez inspirées par l’histoire de Prudence Maybele à propos des "Femmes Positives" qui luttent ensemble pour remettre en question la perception négative dont souffrent les femmes positives au VIH en Afrique.

Transformez vos rêves en actions comme Mayerly Sánchez. Dans son essai “Le Rêve de Créer un Meilleur Pays", elle revit sa campagne pour faire entendre les voix des jeunes du pays aux hommes politiques colombiens.

Remettez en question l’incertitude avec la photographie puissante de Manal Al-Dowayan "Pointant vers le Futur" qui rassemble différentes femmes d’Arabie Saoudite pour qu’elles prennent le contrôle de leur avenir.

Comment amenez-vous un changement positif?

Your stories, music, films and images overwhelmingly speak of a generation of women persevering in the face of adversity. The positive way in which many of you approach life has a profound effect, creating new opportunities, changing the way governments are run and inspiring us all to not give up hope.

Through this exhibit, we have explored personal, political and global hardships that we all face on a daily basis. None of us are immune to the effects of disease, war, and a deteriorating planet. But your stories and artwork have taught us that, from time to time, the most dire situations can be overcome through the simplest of acts; harnessing a positive attitude.

What hardships have you overcome through the power of positive thinking?

I don’t think that this generation of women is any more positive than our mothers’ or our grandmothers’. Contemplating my generation of women in Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, I am actually of the opinion that our generation of women is comparably less positive. That does not mean that I believe that young women in Croatia and BiH are apathetic and passive, on the contrary; I simply believe that we are, unfortunately, less enthusiastic and our step less bouncy and buoyant.

My grandmother, who is 83-years-old, was 15 when the World War II broke out. That was a terrible war, and particularly so in the Dalmatian coast of Croatia. People lived in unimaginable fear: Every type of solder that walked the European continent could and did descend on them at any given time. On odd days it was the Germans and the Italians in their planes that circled the Croatian krs “like birds.” On even days it was either ustashe or cetniks, hungry for blood. They were also at the whim of the partisans who, both hungry and angry, would strike down all “enemy collaborators.”

Well, my aging grandmother remembers every detail of it: the planes overhead, her mother hit and loosing her leg, bleeding to death as the pigs squealed deafeningly in their pen. She remembers hiding in caves, mothers holding their babes’ mouths shut so they would not cry and reveal their hiding-place, terrified men threatening to kill them both if either made a sound. She remembers painting her face black, as she calls it, to hide her beauty from the ravaging troops; and hunger, she remembers terrible hunger.

Nevertheless, her joy is limitless, more than 60 years later, when she remembers the energy of the liberation; the joy of Yugoslavia; the joy of working on a railroad in a distant town she had never heard of before, building bratstvo i jedinstvo from scratch. They sang songs as they built that railroad, and she remembers every single word of every single song. They all dreamed of a better world, a more perfect world. Their terrible past could not taint their rosy future, and they were elated, spirited, and yes, positive.

I feel like my generation of women has never felt an energy as that—a positive energy that races through all bodies all at the same time; an energy that surges through fingers on your hands and makes you itch for another hand to hold in your own, thousands of hands holding one another, convinced of a better tomorrow.

Thank you for your responses. When we say "positive attitude" we aren't referring to a generation of women that looks at the world through a rose-colored lens.

Our generation of women see the problems around them and actively seek solutions. They embrace a can-do-approach to life.

But what do you think? Did our mother's and grandmother's generations approach life in a similar way?
