What is the Pinay Power 2012:
Time Capsule Project?
Archiving our life stories to inspire the next generation of
In preparation for Pinay Power 2012 and the celebration of the next 100 years of Filipina presence in America, FWN will interview FWN's 100 Most Influential Filipina American Women in the United States to create a digital and print archive that will serve as a time capsule for future generations.
A time capsule is a way for us to deliver important messages that we create today to our loved ones at some time in the future. We can put items that are meaningful to us as a group and as individuals. The time capsule will be opened by our designated heirs in 2106. We are giving our heirs a sense of who we are today and what life was like for us in 2012.
When Pinay Power 2012 was birthed at FWN's future search conference at the 4th Filipina Summit in 2006, the Filipino community was celebrating 100 years of Filipino migration in America. Strikingly missing were the stories and documentation of the contributions of Filipina women. "Never again forget the role of Filipina women in the building of America," said Marily Mondejar, president of FWN. This statement inspired the Pinay Power 2012: Time Capsule Project.
This project will actively promote Filipina women's capacities to lead, innovate and inspire the next generation of women. More info, go to http://www.filipinawomensnetwork.org/timecapsule
