BIOGRAPHY

Ette is a member of Wall of Femmes and prefers to use the collective’s mandate as her biographical information. The aims of Wall of Femmes are many:

  • To promote wider recognition and knowledge of women we admire and find inspirational

  • To assert the people's ownership of public space

  • To counter the bombardment by mainstream media of negative, unhealthy, unattainable, sexist and/or objectified images of women in our public space

  • To engage in the public discourse and contribute to the unique culture of our city in a meaningful way
