Based in Australia, social enterprise Sister Works supports and empowers women from migrant, asylum seeker or refugee backgrounds.
They help to develop skills and enter the workplace with confidence. In 2019, Protest Press collaborated with Sister Works to run a workshop crafting statement posters to focus our thoughts and associations with the word empowerment.
Twisting and turning words from newspaper
off-cuts, posters were thoughtfully simple in their process but, opened up larger discussions within the workshop itself. It raised beliefs, questions and sometimes answers to how the women felt individually and collectively about empowerment.
