Labor of Love
A multimedia exhibit celebrating women and work…
Labor of Love is a physical and now online exhibit created by Vermont Works for Women in collaboration with the Vermont Folklife Center as part of VWW’s 25th anniversary festivities in 2012-13. It features stories and photos celebrating the transformative power of work by focusing on ways in which work can engage our passion and connect us to others and in communities.
The 29 featured women are farmers, doctors, tattoo artists, college presidents, electricians and general store clerks. They are passionate about their work, exemplify excellence in their field, and are an inspiration to others. Through Labor of Love, we have the invaluable opportunity to discuss our experiences of work with the young people in our lives and with each other – to talk about the choices we’ve made and the twists and turns of our individual journeys. They are stories worth sharing.
