A Map for the Future
Charlotte Verity
New ZealandGALLERYCONVERSATION
I feel that so many women today are striving in so many ways to stretch beyond their collective history.

It’s almost as if my own grandmother climbed so many steps towards equality, towards freedom, towards creativity and development; my mother took up after her and kept climbing, and I start with their experiences in my back pocket like something of a map.

I think the most important thing anyone can create is change - as in improvement - in both your own and other people's lives, so more than anything I hope I create happiness where I can...just like the most special people in my life do for me.

I think it is a wonderful thought to think that the person which you are is building for a large part on the heritage which your ancestors left for you.
