Women's Work

"Women's work has always been more than the jobs we do. We use our strong hands and hearts to build ships, soothe the sick, care for children in and out of our homes, to act as labor leaders, teachers and builders of peace.

Our work encompasses relationships with partners, children, grandparents and community. No less important is the work we do as spiritual seekers, keeping the vision alive.

May these songs bear witness to the emerging and continuing story of who we, as women, are and always have been. And may the songs encourage others -- men and women -- to write their own stories, to give voice to that spirit within."
