Over the past 50 years Linda Wolf has lived and traveled world-wide as a photographer. From 2006 to 2012, she travelled world-wide. Full Woman, an empowering chant honoring women by Rachel Bagby, inspired her in 2012 to gather together images of women from her travels. This work celebrates the inherent agency and dignity of women—every culture, race, color, shape, size, age, religious affiliation, spiritual belief, 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 ourselves that we are good enough as we are. And to boys and men, may we all get beyond the Gender Boxes and step into our wholeness, in this awesome time of dire beauty.
