We spoke to you a few months ago about Matilde Minauro, also known as Quietpoem, and the delicate and intimate aesthetics of her photographs.
We were impressed by her entire work on her Instagram profile, where she publishes photographs of a peaceful, quiet, elegant, and light world, accompanied by equally clean and poetic words and thoughts.
It was on that profile that a few weeks ago that Matilde decided not only to tell her story but also to dedicate some space to women who over the years have begun to follow her and appreciate her work and her essence.
Matilde, with the project #thefemininesideoftheworld, has decided to use the space she has managed to create for herself to make other women talk too, to allow them to tell who they are, what they do, what their dreams are but also what it means for them to be women.
The response she had was huge, many of her followers wanted to share with her personal stories, thoughts, feelings, difficulties, goals, and their vision of the world.
What she managed to create is an honest and sincere narration of real stories told by women for women, without limits and mediations.
“My choice to embark on this incredible journey to discover the world of women and to give women the freedom to tell their story stems from a need that, as a woman, I have always felt.
As women, we must learn to imagine ourselves so much that we become capable of shaping our lives, without any imposed vision, which very often we end up accepting but which does not represent us.
My intention is to create an open and sincere space where everyone can finally tell their story from a personal point of view.
From here, the possibility of giving concrete support to all women’s entrepreneurial, cultural and artistic realities, came naturally, because we have always seen only the “products” created by those realities, without knowing the story of the women who have fought for the realization of their dreams”. – Matilde told us about her idea and her project.
#thefemininesideoftheworld has thus become a real campaign of female empowerment that culminated with a collaboration with the Lenereidi brand, whose revenues will be donated to the Casa Internazionale Delle Donne (International House of Women).
The limited-edition collaboration implemented by Matilde and Fabiola, the founder of Lenereidi, is an invitation to be part of the change by supporting an important reality such as the one they decided to donate, a free and self-financed center that for more than thirty years has been fighting against sexism and racism, providing welcome and support to women in difficulty and victims of violence, as well as an active part in the development of international cooperation networks, with particular attention to health, work, and women’s artistic production.
*The revenues from sales will be donated to the association on a pro-rata basis (i.e. excluding labor hours and costs of materials and packaging).
