/ NO. 42 STONE COLD RESPECT . NEW PROJECT UPDATE

I recently joined Sisters Rise – a very newly formed women’s organization founded by my friend Gabrielle Rivera, co-founded by my other friend Naama Givoni. Sisters Rise is dedicated to fighting for equality for all human beings, with a major focus on women, through both artwork and action. My first contribution was to create a poster for the women’s marches across the globe, which was available free for download on the Sisters Rise website, as well as on jointheuproar.com. I wanted create something super simple yet which also visually harkened back to both the feminist movement of the 60’s/70’s + the original Riot Grrrl movement of the 90’s. I thought the photocopied ladies finger I used in my “READ OR DIE” zine was a perfect fit and chose the phrase “RESPECT NOW,” as it was the most direct, universal and clear-cut I could think of. RESPECT is the one thing all human beings, regardless of gender, race, or sexual orientation seek. I think this word is synonymous with “love” and “equallity” – for myself, it bridges both of those ideas. My other designs will be available in my web shop and on the Sisters Rise website.
