Sylwester is interested in the influence of water on a country and community, and believes that women, as caretakers, are the vessels through which a resource as basic as water impacts monumental social movements. Her itinerary will include travel along and around the Amazon River, the Nile River, Lake Victoria and the Ganges River as she observes and reflects on how women access, benefit from and enjoy life on water.
