CHANGE THE WORLD Art Aroma by Mehak Mittal Being a mother myself, the concept for this exhibition is very personal and inspiring for me. I have depicted through my artwork some of the most amazing women in this world who have been a mother-figure for countless people around the world. They faced unimaginable adversities both professionally and personally, but persevered through them to change the world we live in today. Mother Teresa, the nun who became a saint: Mother in the truest sense, she devoted her entire life to care for the sick and the poor. She founded the order, The Missionaries of Charity, to look after abandoned babies and to help the poorest of the poor. For her work in uplifting the life of millions of unfortunate people, she received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979. Rosa Parks, the mother of the freedom movement in the United States: Rosa Louise McCauley Parks was an American activist in the civil rights movement best known for her pivotal role in the Montgomery bus boycott. She helped initiate the civil rights movement in the United States when she refused to give up her seat to a white man on a Montgomery, Alabama bus in 1955.The United States Congress has called her "the first lady of civil rights" and "the mother of the freedom movement". Ruth Bader Ginsburg: Ruth Bader Ginsburg spent a lifetime flourishing in the face of adversity before being appointed a Supreme Court justice, where she successfully fought against gender discrimination. Even her exceptional academic record, after graduating top of her class, was not enough to shield her from the gender-based discrimination women faced in the workplace in the 1960s. She overcame these adversities to fight for women in America until her last day.
