I’m truly excited to be featured in This Land through The Title is Nine amongst so many talented artists, including Jenny Chu, Renee Couture, Rena Detrixhe, Edna Lanieri, Crystal McBrayer, Alyssa McDonald, Melissa McGrath, and Jessica Tawczynski. Each week a new artist will be shown and a ‘zine is expected to be produced! To see all of the work and more about The Title is Nine, click here.
“Nine was named in recognition of Title IX, a section of the Education Amendments of 1972 which stated:
No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.
The changes that came from these 37 words opened doors for women to excel in academics, athletics, and beyond, as well as helped to define a federally funded institution’s responsibility to end sexual harassment and violence.”
