In the Canvas series to have More women on the street, to let, Sofie Lemaire, introduce us to the special women in our recent and less recent history. The women whose stories, for some reason, in between the cracks of time has been lost. So the More a woman on the street, forget about the women with a face on it, and hopefully will be able to have a private street or place within the city or town.
She is going to be looking at the stories of these women, in archives, in interviews with experts, or their descendants, in the family albums and memories that are passed on from generation to generation were passed down. In this way, she tries to them for years, and even decades later is still the recognition that they deserve.
Each episode is an account of the campaign to #meervrouwopstraat, who will Miss the beginning of 2019 at the latest, in coordination with the seven cities. The sequence is thus, also, each episode is in another city, in Antwerp, Brussels, Ghent, Leuven, Oostende, Mechelen, belgium. In the last episode, will give a state of the art and highlights women from the smaller towns and villages.
“The campaign to have More women on the street, we have an issue on the map can be set. We want to be (forgotten) women to a well deserved tribute to give. We want to show you in how many ways women have contributed to our society.”
And there is a good reason to do so. Throughout our history, have quite a bit of women great, things are performed, created, and accomplished. It is a pity that someone forgot their names, write their stories, and remember them in history books to be put on. And that omission shows that it is also in our streets. There is, on average, less than 7% of all street names that refer to one person, one woman named. Or rather, was.
After the call She has committed a lot of cities and towns to address that imbalance is to be done. And with success: in the past few years we’ve had dozens of streets, squares, bridges, parks, and other places, in the name of his wife. The results will be announced in this eight-part reportagereeks.
Sophie Lemaire: “This project has given me so much satisfaction as a given. Because it’s more than just a tv show. We have a theme for the map can be set. We want to be (forgotten) women to a well deserved tribute to give. We want to show you in how many ways women have contributed to our society, and even if they did not have that proverbial ‘seat at the table. It is now been taken care of, that I, a square, a street, or a bridge to drive on, that we are in the campaign, with a vrouwennaam were able to complete it, and that fills me with a great sense of pride. And, thanks to the massive amount of suggestions from the public, the list grow longer every day.”
At eight episodes, it shows She has a list of the last few years, ever since the start of the campaign until now. It is an account of her search for the special women in the seven major cities that the project has come. She was looking at info on each in the archives to scholars and members of the family. Also, the general public was for one whole year the names of the women on that list, and add it, with stories that appeal to the senses, or the performance of which is indisputable punishment, a body of work or a legacy that should be cherished.
