AIGA Get Out the Vote: Empowering the Women’s Vote
Submitted By: Terry Irwin
AIGA Chapter: Pittsburgh
Artist Statement: The poster title refers to the 2017 action of the U.S. Senate to invoke Rule 19, barring Senator Elizabeth Warren's objections to confirm Jeff Sessions as U.S. attorney general. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said “She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.” The expression went viral with the hashtag reference, and the meaning has expanded to refer broadly to women’s persistence in breaking barriers, despite being silenced, persecuted, or ignored. Warren went on to announce her candidacy for the U.S. presidency in 2019. The poster lists the contributions of 108 women, who, from 1776 until today have continued to persist, resist and fight for women's rights and positive change. To vote is to persist.
