Americans from the United States might play ignorant to the role their country plays in today's social and cultural injustices but you won't find that here.

Ten American artists use palettes of words, visuals and sounds to wax commentary about contemporary struggles for justice and equality. Some artists have chosen to do so head-on by tackling major global inequalities such as access to safe drinking water and healthcare for women. Others have favored a more inward approach by exploring how American culture has sabotaged the development of their own identity. For these U.S. artists, their work is personal but it has global significance.

Follow along Karen Lum's spoken word rant on her "ethnic make up" that questions how the beauty industry has sabotaged her people's connection to their ancestoral heritage.

Or Shalini Kantayya's film that explores the water crisis between the haves and the have-nots through a musical portrait of two women's stories in India and America. Jolivette Mecena's article "One is Not the Lonliest Number" questions why American culture shuns single women who embrace solo time by eating alone.

Come explore the vast talent and perspective these North American artists bring to the global dialogue. Compare their work with artists from other regions. Then vote for your favorite. We promise, it will be a "fair election."

I enjoyed looking at the various works. I looked at them all but, was particularily moved by Ami Vitale's work. I am also biased as she is my sister but the images of Kashmir were moving.

I loved the work posted by various artists. Finding this site was like an early Christmas present, and I cannot wait to see later offerings. I was particularly moved by Ami Vitale's photos of Kashmir. I read there was another standoff between the Islamic militants and the Indian government again this week, and her photos place a human face on the conflict. I would prefer to see the USA embrace a better understanding of the world at large, and it starts with well researched work like her's. Thank you Ami (and others) for your contributions.

I really enjoyed all the work on this site but because Ami is my daughter, I am biased and vote for her
"the poetry of Kashmir". Congratulations to everyone for beautiful work.

Yes, Christine's work speaks of a liberty that allows women to bare their bellies, but her piece also reminds us budding life is all around. Where there is life, there is hope -- and we need all of that little sentiment we can get these days. All the best to all who are reading.

I love to look at Christine's work. It has a peace about it. She should be recognized as someone who can capture the pregnant woman in a serene way. Keep up the great work Christine.

Fantastic photo - a new life within one's own body -- only a female can do it!
Lily Pads should be #1.

Lily pads is #1 - simple and all encompassing.
Poetry of Kashmir was #2. Hopeful and haunting.
One is not the lonliest Number is my #3. tO SIT WITH OURSELVES, AND TO CULTIVATE A SENSE OF THAT as OK, or even just fine, is key to avoiding all sorts of insanity. I look forward to the author's return to her country, California. Written in Point Reyes, California.
They were all exsquisite. All of the entries. Our heats and our uniqeness explodes all competition. Peace.

Each woman's story moved me and added richness to my day, but if I must choose:
#1. "Lily Pads": The dreamlike quality of the repeated image created a series of stepping stones into my own past and linked me to women past, present and future.
#2. "Any Day Now" was so straightforward and unaffected. It made me believe that genuine self-acceptance is possible for every woman--that one day it will be as natural as breathing.
#3. "Slip of the Tongue": This one surprised me. I liked the way a male voice was incorporated to reveal the strength of the young woman who sets him straight.

#1 Lily Pads is the most visually arresting and thought-provoking of the pieces from North America. The monochromatic homogeneity of the subjects, arrayed in a kind of path of swollen bellies to the horizon, evokes the near-universal female experience of continuous, even inevitable, renewal of life.
#2 Natural Connections
#3 Poetry of Kashmir
