Women Who Bathe Together

At a public bath in Morocco, I watched a young adolescent bathe her grandmother. She picked up each limb, moved her breasts this way and that, and shifted her belly about to reach every crevice. She stood over her, squatted next to her, and sat alongside her as she put a fair amount of muscle into scrubbing her grandmother clean. The black soap made from olive oil oozed from the coarse cloth she used to slough off the dead skin and dirt. The grandmother lolled on the tiled floor in a reverie.

A Call to Artists: Support Parecon

A history of art over the last 100 years, not as the history of the product, the piece, but as the history of decision making within our industry, is the history of investors acquiring greater control over the distribution, the definition, and the making of art products - and thus over who we are. It is the history of power slipping further from the people who make the piece to the people who profit from the piece. Yes, there are individual art stars aplenty. But as workers in an industry, we are being ground into dust.

"Human Rights: For Everyone?"

Synopsis: The evolution of the "Declaration of Human Rights" is highlighted in the "Human Rights: For Everyone?" project. Prominent Iranians-Americans reach out globally for these hard fought and hard won principles to be honored everywhere. This project aims to cultivate a culture of human rights within societies and praises the "Declaration of Human Rights" for being established as universal principles that belong to every one of us.

Longline: A fair account of the history of human rights needs to be acknowledged by those aspiring to have theirs recognized. Cyrus the Great issued the first charter of Human Rights and freedoms known to civilization in ancient Persia in 539 BCE.
