 “The Way of Women” implies the roles and duties in honorable and dignity conduct, the act on the basis of goodness, the humility to those who have faith. Heaven is at mother’s feet so treat mothers well and protect women from harm. In Islam, men and women have equal rights with different duties. Women are assigned with the duties and roles of “mother”. Combination of interconnected ties will deliver to the soul and values of goodness. Inspired by the integrity in Thai society, this group of Muslim female artists from Pattani, Yala and Narathiwat are able to capture the creativity in the approach and style that characterizes the new generation of female artists to express themselves and drive the art work to further the ideas, processes and procedure with hope that it will contribute and help nurture hope and courage for all the female artists in the deep South.
