Over the past 50 years Linda Wolf has lived and traveled around the world as a photographer. From 2006 to 2012, she was inspired by a powerful chant honoring women by Rachel Bagby to gather images of diverse women and those who identify as female. This work celebrates the inherent agency and dignity of women from varied countries, cultures, races, shapes, sizes, ages, religious affiliations, spiritual beliesf, sexual orientation, and life experience. These images celebrate the power and strength that make each woman a full woman unto herself. It is said that a civilization is judged by it's treatment of women. All women deserve agency, dignity and integrity. The women in this video are from China, Thailand, India, Mexico, Guatemala, the USA, Canada, Europe, Africa, Iran, and Israel/Palestine. I am a Full Woman is decided to the girls and women of the world, to remind us that we are good enough as we are. And to boys and men who are willing to go beyond the Gender Box and toxic masculinity and step into their wholeness.
