The Story Behind The PRIDE Design
Inspired by the beautiful stained glass windows in the Great Hall at Snug Harbor Cultural Center, we were reminded that just as individual panes can come together to create a beautiful glass mosaic, women join together to form an even more unique and diverse community of support and empowerment.
In the center of it all, the new design also features the Divine Women logo comprised of the rare purple lotus flower encased in the universal symbol for women. It is our hope that Divine Women can continue to serve as a central forum for women to come together to inspire and uplift each other for years to come.
