About The Work

This flag celebrates The 100th Anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, guaranteeing women’s right to vote in the United States of America. It was the work of the suffragettes that demanded that we be given the vote and the power to have our voices heard. It is through our actions - not our words - that we can bring about social justice. Our work can be multi layered - fragmented, frayed, imperfect, met with resistance and rejection but we must carry on to create a more just country for all. We may not know the actions and struggles of our matriarchs and those women who went before us, but they live on through our own actions creating a collective force for change. In today’s divided political climate the one thing that we can agree upon is that we MUST VOTE. The woman sitting in the center of the flag is my great grandmother who was said to be the first woman in my family to vote. The baby pictured is my grandmother and it is my face searching out the viewer - challenging us all to continue what the suffragists started. On the other side of the flag viewers are invited to sign their names alongside the names of many of the suffragists who fought for our right and privilege, to vote.–Amy Geib
