From Economica:

Despite the fact that women have historically been excluded from many economic opportunities, they have always found new and resourceful ways to contribute. Now, a greater number of women than ever before are participating in the economy, and the result is beneficial to woman-kind and society as a whole. Cheryl Braganza's vivid painting depicts the optimism and excitement of women earning new respect and assisting each other at the grassroots level to work towards an economically robust and sustainable future.
