I created these three vase illustrations about women gaining financial knowledge and strength as I have become very passionate about this topic. To this day, women still earn much less money than men, especially when you consider the financial sacrifices women often make when having and raising children. These are also the ones that suffer the most from poverty in old age. However, in recent years, a bigger awareness of the issue has been raised through various prominent figures, literature and programs and more women are starting to get financially fitter and to invest.

For the illustrations I chose greek black-figure painted vases as symbols of mythology and history. I hope that one day, female financial empowerment will not be a noteworthy thing anymore, but a thing of the past and instead it will be a normal part in our everyday lives.
