“Women’s March 2017: By the Numbers” by Kathy York
This is one in a series of posts featuring an artist whose work is included in the Threads of Resistance exhibition.
This quilt was made to honor the 3 million women who marched globally the day after President Trump was inaugurated. I wanted to give the viewer a feeling for just how big 3 million is. Each little square is ½ inch and represents 325 people. That is equivalent to a large jet airplane filled with people. So imagine a full airplane for each one of these tiny squares! It is A LOT of people, all marching to protect the rights of women!
