Building altars (Group 7 Blog post #1)

After weeks of planning and gathering materials, the day has finally come. Our team, Alina, Diane and Grace, spent the last half an hour building our altar and chatting with other teams about their altars. For our altar, it was important to not just honor and remember one woman, but instead to recognize the thousands of immigrant women who have been denied basic rights and oppressed by interlocking systems of power. In our altar, we have incorporated the importance of aesthetic expression which many of these women used in order to challenge the patriarchal society we live in. As we talked to other groups, it appears that many of them also centered their altars around these powerful concepts we covered in class this quarter.
