Have you been invited? The invitation looks something like this:
We can’t wait. And what great inspiration for our Christmas cards this year! In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the death of Emily Davison, and the new ‘Suffragette’ blockbuster filmed in 2014 (to be released on 16th January 2015), here’s another design with a more traditional suffragette theme:
Both of the above are already available on our website as part of this year’s radical Christmas card collection. Here are another two new designs for 2014, commemorating some progressive causes this year:
We tip our hats to two important campaigns this year – ‘No More Page 3‘ and the fight against homophobia in Uganda and around the world. We’ve no doubt missed a few important ones, but couldn’t think of any that could easily translate into Christmas card designs. Any ideas?
At the start of the 21st century, a hundred years after the death of Emily Davison, what are the defining issues for women? The renewed fight for contraceptive and abortion rights? The backlash against objectification, pornification and ‘rape culture’ in newspapers, TV and on social media? Or issues such as poverty, the fight for a living wage and work place equality?
And who are the greatest movers and shakers campaigning for women today?
Lucy Holmes who started the ‘No more page 3’ campaign arguably deserves a mention. The campaign was launched in 2013 with a petition calling on the Sun’s editor, Dominic Mohan, to “take the bare boobs out of The Sun.” To date it has tens of thousands of signatories and support from numerous organisations.
