The Importance of Villages  by Catherine Capozzi  

“Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers.

Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society.

Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears.

Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” 

Our Mission & Values

SheVille.org is a Women’s Online Community Magazine. Our primary areas of interest are women’s lives & health, local community, business & finance, the arts & writing, sustainability & the environment. SheVille’s featured articles focus attention on current progressive news about policies that impact women and families within the context of racial, gender, educational, and economic issues with special attention in the area of social justice. We believe that how it goes for women and families in a community determines how it goes for the community at large.

We value and have as our guiding principles the ideals of diversity, creativity, balance, collaboration, kindness & compassion and sustainability & environmental preservation that challenge greed, exploitation & domination.

As an online media presence since 2005, SheVille has experienced tremendous growth over the years by listening to what readers want to know about and want to offer. We value the distinctive character of Western North Carolina people and locally owned businesses. Through SheVille’s unique media platform we have opportunity to vision and help create a local community that works toward equity, diversity and sustainability and prides itself in KEEPING ASHEVILLE WEIRD!  

By supporting local business we also create and maintain jobs that keep revenue right here at home – revenue that provides regional, social and economic stability throughout WNC. (Purchase a GO LOCAL Card today !)
