Guess who?

My alter ego lives in the south of France, where she is involved in a women's empowerment project. She teaches local women who have been laid off from the pâté factory to use the ancient looms of their town. These women create beautiful, expensive luxury objects for France's ruling class, and experience the joys of artisanship while earning a nominal wage. My alter ego got a big UNICEF grant to do this and is hoping to get another one to help former spaghetti-making women in Italy start a sculpture co-op.
