Egbert Jacobsen’s poster from the American Suffrage movement in 1908 represents the long journey of women’s rights. The Greecian helmet represents values of dignity, representation, and justice, while the axe represents strength in equality. What women are you celebrating on this International Women’s Day? What does the day, and the necessity of having one, mean to you? Whose sacrifices have made your life, liberties, and communities possible? Where do you draw your strength? How do you see the declaration that “Equality is the sacred law of humanity” playing out in your community? Where do we fall short in making this statement true?
