There are more grandmothers in the world today than ever before. They are younger, healthier, better educated, and better off than they have ever been. They are energetic and effective and they are modeling important lessons of collaboration, generosity, patience, perseverance and resilience.
Paola Gianturco, a grandmother herself, has profiled 120 activist grandmothers in 15 countries on 5 continents in Grandmother Power: A Global Phenomenon. Her interviews and photographs highlighting their amazing stories were the inspiration for this exhibition.
