We the Women is a visual initiative made up of female, female-identifying and non-binary designers who are bringing awareness to the general public focused on women’s rights in the United States. Women designers were invited to contribute their talents in the form of poster designs. Each designer’s unique perspective is represented in the collection and is a response to the attacks on women’s rights.
I firmly believe in the expression, credited to former U.S. Speaker of the House Tip O’Neill, that "All politics are local." That is, a politician or even a policy's success is directly tied to an ability to understand and influence the issues of constituents. Politicians must appeal to the basic, everyday concerns of those who elect them into office. Those personal issues, rather than big and intangible ideas, are often what voters care most about. When thinking of solutions for this poster submission, I looked locally, to the state in which I live. They say everything is bigger in Texas and unfortunately this also applies to the challenge women face in The Lone Star State trying to stay healthy.
I am hoping this poster brings focus in a clear and eye-catching way the abysmal statistical facts the state of Texas needs to address in keeping women in the state healthy. This poster was well received by the We the Women Collective.
