Welcome to the #wearyourcrown❤ campaign, a global movement by women, for women. If you’re a dreamer, a world-changer, or a creative soul looking to join an empowering community of women, you’re in the right place. Our aim is to challenge and inspire women all over the world to find their own unique voice, inner strength, and power by wearing their crowns.
The crown is more than just an accessory – it’s a symbol of ultimate power, but also of service, dedication, and quiet determination.
In 2021 artist Ramona Pintea and Angie Xidias from One Bean Marketing, the founders of the #wearyourcrown❤ campaign, partnered with 9 influential women from various fields including business, politics, arts, entertainment, and non-profits to inspire empower and elevate women globally.
Ramona created 9 stunning Urban Queen portraits, each inspired by one of these remarkable women, who are Susan Sloan, Natalia Martin, Sofia Bekatorou, Barbara Lizzet Sanchez, Amie Louie, Jayshree Mallaya, Donna Ashworth, and Casey Donavon, with each painting highlighting a specific women’s issue for fundraising and awareness.
On March 8, 2022, The #wearyourcrown campaign was officially launched with an art exhibition at the Zena Hotel in Washington, DC. The Hotel Zena is a unique space that combines a hotel and art gallery, with a focus on celebrating women and their achievements. It provided the ideal location to kickstart the campaign on International Women’s Day and was attended by a diverse group of powerful and inspiring women from around the world, who came together to raise funds and awareness for women’s issues
Among the attendees were many of the inspiring women painted by Ramona, as well as some remarkable women including Her Excellency Dr. Thelma Phillip-Browne, St. Kitts and Nevis’ Ambassador to the United States, Alina Dociu, Romanian Embassy to the United States; Kimberly Bassett, Secretary of State for the District of Columbia; Shahin Mafi, CEO of Home Health Connection, Inc. Jan Du Plain, president of Global Enterprises Inc
In July 2022, Ramona Pintea teamed up with Feya Cafe & Restaurant in London to create two stunning murals showcasing the Urban Queen paintings and the #wearyourcrown❤ message. The murals are in a public space, allowing for greater visibility and accessibility to the empowering campaign.
Located at the junction of Marble Arch, Edgware Road, and Oxford Street, the Feya Cafe & Restaurant is a sought-after landmark in London. The decision to collaborate with Feya was a natural fit for the #wearyourcrown❤ campaign, as the cafe shares Ramona’s core values of empowering women and reducing the gender pay gap. In fact, Feya maintains a 75% female workforce and donates 10% of its retail products’ profits to various women’s causes.
Ramona Pintea is not just an artist; she’s a passionate advocate for empowering women. She believes that art has the power to inspire and elevate women by reminding them of their inner strength and power. For Ramona, art is more than just a form of expression; it’s a way to create a movement for change.
Ramona’s Urban Queen paintings are her way of encouraging women to wear their crowns with pride and embrace their inner queen. Art has always been at the forefront of social change. Throughout history, artists have used their talents to challenge societal norms and inspire people to fight for justice and equality. Ramona sees herself as part of this tradition, using her art to empower women and create a movement for change.
We are always looking for new and innovative ways to collaborate with like-minded individuals and organizations who share our vision of inspiring, empowering, and elevating women around the world toward a more gender-balanced society. If you have any ideas for collaboration that align with our mission, we would love to hear from you.
Together, we can make a positive impact on the lives of women everywhere and create a more equitable future for all. So, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us to learn more about how we can work together to make a difference. Let’s join forces and create something amazing! Contact me here.
