is Central Florida's Freshest Theater Initiative
- Women playwrights get a new boost from Women Playwrights' Initiative
(WPI) during the 2006-07 season through an initiative called Wave
of Women Writers (WOWW!). This new strategy emerged from WPI's reworked
mission statement and its commitment to closer examination of the
area's advancement of produced plays written by women. "The
great news is that people are asking questions, which is surely
the result of more awareness of the scarcity of women's plays,"

reveal Mona Lisa secrets
Paris - Researchers studying 3-D images of the Mona Lisa
say she was probably either pregnant or had just given birth when
she sat for Leonardo da Vincis 16th century masterpiece. The
clue was something she wore. Scans turned up evidence of a fine,
gauzy veil around Mona Lisas shoulders a garment women
of the Italian Renaissance wore when they were expecting, a leading
French museum researcher, Michel Menu, said this week. As the painting
aged, the veil darkened. The thick, dark varnish on the work made
it difficult even to know what color her dress is it has
been described as everything from black to brown to green. A piece
of fabric draped over Mona Lisas shoulder sometimes was interpreted
as a shawl or scarf.
