WOMEN WE CAN BELIEVE IN

I

t was 2008. The presidential election was on the horizon, and whatever the outcome, we knew the election was going to make history. After the primaries, it was clear that the winning team would have one member who was not a white man, for the first time ever. The election commentary was brutal, often focusing on the women candidates and how they looked - and for one candidate, undue attention was given to her eyeglasses, even from liberal media. Jessica Spring, a letterpress artist in Tacoma, Washington, spent many days in her print shop during the election season listening to the gory details dissected on liberal public radio, and poured her frustration into her work. She dug up a quote by Elizabeth Cady Staton that - despite being written before the turn of the last century - summed it all up: "Come, come my conservative friend, wipe the dew off your spectacles and see the world is moving".

Chandler O'Leary, an illustrator and letterer, had just moved to town, ready to take the leap to full-time self-employment. Serendipitously she discovered that fellow type aficionado Jessica lived right up the street. Both transplants with experience in the Midwest graphic design and letterpress worlds, we bonded over shared frustration with the election and appreciation for the printed word. Jessica painstakingly hand-sets vintage metal and wood type to create artwork that combines text and image. Chandler uses drawing as a tool to create artwork to create original type and give words a unique voice. We both spend a fair amount of time writing, including original text in our work and penning articles and blog posts. We discovered that we both have a background in graphic design and printmaking - and that we share a common love for art of the broadside.

Jessica asked Chandler to provide ...

ecently we've seen, fortunately, how women empowered themselves, talking by themselves, having there own voice.

This fact has been translated in many expressions in different levels of our society, at last, in our daily life. For example, in a social net like Instagram, there is an important community of women artist-illustrators. Some samples can be

The female point of view is not only in the fact that they are women, also on the illustration there is an alternative and more realistic thematic concerning ethnicities, bodies and actions. You could have the feeling that is all more about "what they want to see" and less " what someone tells what they have to be".

But I have just one fear about all of this. I hope, i really hope, this is not just a trend that could disappear like others did before. For me, I guess, this is a point of no return, the new way to represent the world and not just for women -nogender people. I like to think this is for all of us.

e brave, be brave be brave... Who knows what was inside the Harriet Tubman's mind when she was planning her scape from an slavery camp in 1849. And even more when, after, she came back to rescue her family and friends. She was called "Moses" and she "never lost a passenger". Years after, in her lately life, she was fighting for women rights inside the suffragist movement.

The story about Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroud (the secret route with safe houses that let people scape to the free states and Canada) is so impressive than and I think is better for you to read and discover it by yourself.

For that, dear croissant, I let you here can this links from Wikipedia
