The patience of women is a critical subtext of the suffrage movement: after all, women waited well over a hundred years for their right to vote to be recognized. Nonetheless, one hundred years later women are STILL waiting—for pay equity, for equal representation in legislatures and boardrooms, for the end of patriarchal culture. This triptych features screen-print portraits of women who are waiting—waiting in line to vote, literally, but also waiting to take their rightful, equal place in society.
