This painting is dedicated to the courageous women who went before us and did what they said we couldn’t do, who went where we weren’t permitted, who spoke when we were told to be silent. This is for the women who suffered to make way for those of us who came behind them. It’s for the suffragettes who were beaten, arrested, and rejected by their families so that I would be given the right to vote. It for those who had to work hundred times harder than a man for that first medical degree, first pilots license, first directors chair, first senate seat.
Thank you to the women who have shown courage under fire, who have persevered, taken the hits and made the path a little easier. We can take courage in your example.
The sides are painted black for a finished look. Comes ready to hang!
