Women You Should Know (womenyoushouldknow) - Feminism At Work

ABOUT THE ART
In honor of Women’s History Month, Women You Should Know commissioned award-winning cartoonist, author and illustrator, David Trumble to execute our vision for an original piece of art that would pay tribute to some of history’s most courageous women; fearless females who went out on a limb to speak out, to stand up, and to act in the fight for women’s rights and equality; pioneers who moved women’s history forward and thought leaders who continue to carry that torch. We are so proud to present… Feminism At Work.

Spanning almost 200 years of U.S. history, from the mid-1800s through today, Feminism At Work captures the spirit of the women’s movement by highlighting some of its greatest champions – 12 in total – from different eras. Because they are the hands-on builders who set out to forge a better and more equal path for women everywhere, often putting themselves in precarious and unpopular positions in the process, the composition of the piece evokes the iconic 1932 black and white photograph Lunchtime Atop A Skyscraper, or more informally Men At Work. Believed to have been taken by photographer Charles Ebbets, it features 11 ironworkers eating lunch on a steel beam, dangling 850 feet above New York City’s streets, while on break from constructing the RCA building (now the GE building) in Rockefeller Center.

In contrast, Feminism At Work is intentionally set against a transitioning backdrop – from monochrome to vivid color – of a more modern New York, as it’s very much about the future, about continuing to move forward, expanding on the solid foundation these women have laid for all of us, and for generations of women to come. And there is no “lunch break” when it comes to the women’s movement as there always was and still is much work to be done in the fight for women’s equality.

Of the countless American women we could have included, we worked with women’s historian and political consultant Pam Elam, founder of The Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony Central Park Statue Fund, to narrow it down to a core group of 11 that, like the pieces of a complicated puzzle, each represent a vital part of the whole picture. We rounded out our list to a total of 12 women by including someone we call “Future Woman,” an unidentified individual who represents the new wave of feminists, the collective of young women and girls of the digital age who will continue to lead the charge.

(Snipping a bunch of stuff that is super cool, including descriptions of why they were included - highly recommended reading - but take a look at the list!)

Meet The 12 Women Of Feminism At Work

Margaret Fuller (1810-1850)
Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815-1902) and Susan B. Anthony (1820-1906)
Jane Addams (1860-1935)
Ida B. Wells-Barnett (1862-1931)
Margaret Sanger (1879-1966)
Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962)
Bella Abzug (1920-1998)
Shirley Chisholm (1924-2005)
Gloria Steinem (1934 – )

Hillary Rodham Clinton (1947 – )
“Women’s rights are human rights and human rights are women’s rights.” (from the groundbreaking speech she gave in Beijing in 1995). This is a woman who smashed through one political glass ceiling after another, while being a champion for women’s empowerment, entrepreneurship, and investment in women’s economic potential. In 2001, Hillary Clinton became the only American first lady to hold national office when she was elected to the U.S. Senate. She became the 67th U.S. Secretary of State in 2009, serving until 2013. During that time, she brought the message of equality, justice, and opportunity for women and girls to a global stage, giving it worldwide attention.

4. Thank you - I have trouble with images on DU.

 

It is a great picture. I also did not know about the work of my namesake, plus some details about the other ladies. No matter where things go, it is a great honor for Hillary to be numbered among such illustrious company.

5. Excellent link! Thanks!

I am thinking about making a purchase...perhaps the tote because I could use it at the store and it would be seen as I put groceries inside.
The feminism movement continues...so much work to do!
