I adore this photograph. It echoes the iconic image of Rosie the Riveter from that small window in history where women were called to step up and fill roles traditionally filled by men; roles that gave them a taste of what it’s like to be independent and self-sufficient, just to be effectively forced back into “their feminine place” once the boys came home. This reminds me that my place as President of Trilogy Consignment Inc. was earned by the generations of women who fought to make their own life choices and proved that women could be taken seriously in the business world. When faced with the things that we are still fighting for, now not just as women but as progressive-minded, loving, compassionate intersectional activists of all (or no) genders, it’s nice to be reminded of our victories. I’m not tired yet, so I’ll gladly take over for anyone who is. Thank you for your service, sisters and brothers.
