Why "Airswimming" and why now? There seems to be an increasing attack on women's freedom again. Wade vs. Roe being abandoned in the U.S., countries around the world where women are still struggling for recognition/power, or trying to regain/maintain it after a shift in government & power. So if not now then when?
This is for all the brave and courageous young girls and women who fight for, or preserve their place, in the world every day. You are all queens and you are all beautiful & strong.
