My Time is Valuable is a participatory project that makes visible the value of women, girls, non-binary and female identifying people's time by spreading this critical message: my time is valuable in our homes, workplaces, and beyond. Free prints are given to women, girls, non-binary and female identifying people to keep, and, if desired, to share a photo of themselves with the print on social media. My Time is Valuable prints are intended to serve as reminders to ourselves and others that we are to be valued and treated equitably. As the Guerilla Girls have advocated for decades, we deserve equal pay, equal opportunities and to live, work and play in a fair and just society. This work is inspired by their advocacy and many others who have come before me.
My Time is Valuable is shared and spread in person, in publications, through social media and at public events where access is free and available to all. Information about obtaining a free print can be found at: mytimeisvaluable.org.
