Woman and Earth’s Seminar Series comes at the heels of a series of successful press conferences held in connection with Woman and Earth’s 25th Anniversary of its founding in 2004 and the 25th Anniversary of founder Tatyana Mamonova’s exile in 2005. Several of these press conferences took place with the generous support of Corinthia Nevskij Palace Hotel and Go to Russia Travel in Woman and Earth’s native St. Petersburg, Russia. These press conferences included lengthy question and answer sessions between Tatyana Mamonova and the audience who were inspired by Tatyana’s talks and expressed an enthusiasm for her to expound on the dialogue which already began by focusing on a series of subjects which can be addressed in more detail. Hence the birth of WE’s Seminar Series.
The timing of WE’s Seminar Series in St. Petersburg is also ideal since Woman and Earth has finally secured a permanent home base on Dekabristov Street 7, in the center of St. Petersburg.
On July 20, 1980, just as the Moscow Olympic Games were to start, the international democratic women’s leader, journalist, artist and poet, Tatyana Mamonova became the first female dissident exiled from her native St. Petersburg, Russia to Vienna, Austria for providing the first independent forum for Russian and Soviet women’s voices in the samizdat Woman and Russia Almanac, and for re-igniting the Russian women’s movement by founding the grassroots NGO that published the samizdat also called Woman and Russia (now called Woman and Earth).
25 years later, Tatyana Mamonova remains in exile but has grown her NGO and publication into a world renown educational, cultural and informational networking and discussion forum that serves as a unique bridge of understanding between East and West by promoting the contributions of Russian women, international solidarity between women and a peaceful and sustainable planet.
A perfect example is the continuation of the samizdat Woman and Russia, now called Woman and Earth Almanac, plus its two daughters — two new publications which now complete the trilogy — Succes d’estime and Fotoalbum: Around the World. Copies of these publications will be distributed free of charge to participants.
In addition to educational media publications, Woman and Earth produces an award winning television series is shown on cable television in the US and organizes film festivals designed to promote productions which empower women and the earth. Woman and Earth’s Sister to Sister Educational Project has organized seven international conferences in a number of venues throughout the world, press conferences, seminars and exhibitions designed to provide gender empowerment strategies as well as to promote and feature cultural contributions of women.
At the local level, Woman and Earth takes a more activist role in identifying the local needs of women and the environment through the development of local chapters in various countries, as well as individual and organizational cooperation. Woman and Earth was an accredited NGO to the UN Habitat Conference that was held in Istanbul Turkey.
The invaluable contributions of Woman and Earth throughout the years have been led since its inception by the courage, leadership and vision of Tatyana Mamonova, who has been recognized for her outstanding contributions to humanity by her receipt of a number of accolades which include the 2002 Living Legacy Award (past recipients include US Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton), 100 Heroines Award, and Femme Magazine Paris’s Woman of the Year 1980 Award. French Journalist Florence Montreynaud recognized Tatyana Mamonova and Woman and Earth’s publication of the first samizdat Woman and Russia Almanac as the most significant event for women in 1979 in her French Encyclopedia on Women’s contributions of the 20th Century.
Prior to her leadership of the first women’s NGO in Russia, Tatyana Mamonova was also the first women exhibitor in the non-conformist artist movement. She has exhibited and sold her award winning art in more than 25 countries. Some of Tatyana Mamonova’s exquisite paintings will be on display in a special exhibition set up throughout the day, as well as other documentation of 25 years of Woman and Earth activities.
