Wet Easter for girls and Women in Hungary


On Easter Monday boys and men visit their women relatives, friends, neighbors, often even if they are not close friends. They usually go in small groups and are "armed" with soda-water siphon and cologne water. The "tour" usually starts early in the morning and lasts all day long. They great girls and women with shorter funny and sometimes a bit blue poems then sprinkle the women. The women must be well-prepared, they treat men with dessert and beverages - and with hand-painted eggs.

At the end of the day women usually wear a dozen of different colognes and sometimes the men have the sun in their eyes from the many cups of beverages.

Thanks to Steve Strassmann for the story tip.

Our First-Ever Student Art Exhibit

We all know that one of the most crucial ways to be a successful artist is to show ones work. The Women's Center show recently presented “Women’s Center Show for Equality,” where artists of all genders were able to submit work for the exhibit. No work was turned down because the goal of the show was to provide every artist a chance to showcase their art. We received and hung over thirty wonderful examples of graphic work, photography, collage, acrylic, oil and pastels, from Freshmen to Senior students at AIB (Art Institute of Boston). The show was up for a month, but we started with a fun opening with refreshments.

We feel it is important to provide a space for artists to showcase their work. The event was quite successful. Interested in showing your work in the women’s center? Contact us at!
