Women in Tibet are known for their strength and wisdom, and as keepers of
traditional culture. They have long enjoyed a somewhat better status in
society compared to many cultures surrounding the Tibetan plateau. However,
as the Dalai Lama's mother wrote, in Tibet "the husband-wife relationship
was not one of equality. The woman is always subservient." The challenges
within Tibetan society now are compounded by the struggle to maintain a
distinct Tibetan culture as more and more Chinese settlers move into Tibet.
Women have responded by becoming leaders in business and community
organizations, nuns, educators, professors and writers. ICT's 2010 Women in
Tibet calendar pays homage to Tibetan women and how they confront issues of
discrimination, poverty, and national subjugation.
