During the summer and fall of 2020, I was interviewed by a number of media outlets, including Newsweek, Canadian Broadcasting, Global Network News, and WBEZ, the Chicago-based NPR affiliate, regarding the nomination of Kamala Harris and the centennial of American women’s federal suffrage. Among the events I participated in was the one announced above, hosted by Toni Preckwinkle, also featured during that season in the #VoteHerIn podcast.

“I’m not just telling you to read Vote Her In: Your Guide to Electing Our First Woman President because I had the honor of interviewing author Rebecca Sive. I’m telling you to read it because if feminists are going to take over the universe one elected office at a time, we need a solid strategy. Thanks to the poster imagery, Vote Her In serves both as an inspiring manifesto and an enduring snapshot of the women’s Rebellion in action.” by Karen Hawkins, editor, Rebellious Magazine

#VoteHerIn is a perennial idea, worthy of consideration in museum settings, too. This image is from the gift shop at the Lubeznik Center for the Arts in Michigan City, Indiana. And the topic can also be broadly construed: the Everson Museum of Art featured a study session of its ceramics collection with me, in which I discussed my advocacy of equal recognition and treatment of women artists.
