This week, I’ve shared vibrant portraits celebrating women of color and strong females kicking the shins of the patriarchy. Let’s cap off this week with the work of Rachel Ignotofsky, who recently released a poster depicting Female Activists Throughout History. “These women have fought, organized, and protested the inequality they saw around them,” Rachel explains. “This poster celebrates how they helped to create a better future. I hope this illustration inspires you to use your own unique voice to resist and fight injustice.” Half of the proceeds from each sale will be donated to the ACLU in your name.
From Harriet Tubman to Eleanor Roosevelet to Laverrne Cox, Rache’s illustration depicts inspiring women that span centuries. Each is accompanied with one of their famous quotes. I want to buy this poster for all of my lady friends.
Female Activists Throughout History is available in Rachel’s Etsy shop.
Rachel is also the illustrator behind the viral sensation Women in Science, which was turned into a book and released last year.
