SheVille Team

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “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.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission SheVille.org provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.

CELEBRATE WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH WITH US! The National Museum of Women in the Arts

It started with a seemingly simple question: Can you name five women artists?

Since 2016, the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) has been asking this question on social media each March during Women’s History Month using the hashtag #5WomenArtists. The campaign calls attention to the fact that women have not been treated equally in the art world, and today they remain dramatically underrepresented and undervalued in museums, galleries, and auction houses.


Not Every Woman Who Served With the U.S. Military During World War I Got the Same Treatment. Here’s Why

The First World War is often described as the first “modern” war. The term generally refers to mechanized warfare in the form of tanks and airplanes; terrorizing civilian populations as an act of war; and the mobilization of society as a whole. But it could also apply to the new roles of women in their nations’ war efforts.


Choose Joy, Create Money Magic

By Rachel Tanksley

Does this bring you joy?  I bet the majority of you have heard this phrase before.  It is the heart of “KonMari,” Marie Kondo’s tidying and organizing method.  I became intrigued by Marie Kondo when my daughter was a toddler.  She teaches a super-efficient, space saving technique of folding clothes where you can still see each piece of clothing at the same time.  Boy was I excited by the prospect of having tidy toddler dresser drawers.  If you’ve spent much time around toddlers, you know that dream vanished quickly.  However, one concept I did incorporate into my life is asking myself the question “does this bring me joy?” and then acting accordingly based on the answer.

Women’s History Trail: Walk in Their Steps

The Women’s History Trail…Small Steps… a project sponsored by the Folk Heritage Association of Macon County (FHAMC), is taking small steps that will hopefully lead to big strides for women’s history by celebrating the lives of Macon County women, honoring their accomplishments and creating a trail to “walk in her steps.” This project aims to weave together the disparate elements of our history: Native American, White, Black; those of all levels of society; those of pioneer stock and those more recently arrived, telling their stories through various art mediums/exhibits and markers along a designated path.
