This is the premise for starting the We the Women project. Real change and women helping and empowering other women to build a new approach, represent the female voice in our country and bring our perspective to the forefront.
On the political and legislative landscape, the female perspective is unique and important. But, sadly, while we are consistently breaking barriers and stereotypes, we are still in the minority in the political arena and that won’t protect us from any of the issues already stated.
What better way to raise awareness and build platforms around women’s rights than through our visual voices. We, as a group of women and women-identifying designers, can create visually compelling images that represent this new movement. As Steinem referenced, this is our “new pie”.
Our goal is to have prints ready to sell online as soon as possible. Under this administration, women’s rights are continually under attack. If we work together, we can create awareness around the issues that matter and really stress the importance of having women’s voices represented and heard today
