I wanted to let you know that limited quantities of ICT's 2010 wall calendar, Women in Tibet, are still available. We expect to sell out of this year's calendar, so please order early to avoid disappointment.
Women in Tibet are known for their strength and wisdom and as keepers of traditional culture. They have long enjoyed a somewhat better status in society compared to many cultures surrounding the Tibetan plateau.
The challenges within Tibetan society now are compounded by the struggle to maintain a distinct Tibetan culture as more and more Chinese settlers move into Tibet. Tibetan women have responded by becoming leaders in business and community organizations, nuns, educators, professors and writers. Women in Tibet are also at the forefront of the human rights and freedom movements.
ICT's 2010 Women of Tibet calendar pays homage to these Tibetan women and how they are confronting issues of discrimination, poverty and national subjugation.
Calendars are available for $13.99 plus shipping and handling from ICT's online store. Visit www.savetibet.org/store to see more images from the calendar and to purchase online. Quantity discounts are available for orders of 5 or more. Each calendar is printed on 100% recycled paper (30% post consumer) using soy-based inks.
