On International Women's Day the City Councilor of Culture Saïd Kasmi unveils a new sculpture, The Plait, by Kallipi Lemos, on the sculpture terrace at the Westersingel in Rotterdam. The Droom en Daad Foundation has gifted the sculpture to the people of Rotterdam.
“Real change happens one thing at a time - enduring change happens one step at a time, said Ruth Bader Ginsburg the US Supreme Court Judge. I was saddened to hear that this guardian angel of women’s human rights passed away. The Plait could serve as a memorial for her qualities, her philosophy, and the principles that guided her life - a compass for humanity! The Plait, is a feminine sensual symbol made of hundreds of intertwined thin rods that rises ambitiously towards the sky as if just by standing upright is making its own statement of self-worth and defiance.”
