This print, from Faith Ringgold's portfolio of prints "The Declaration of Freedom and Independence," depicts Sojourner Truth and Abigail Adams in silhouette. On the right, the portrait of Sojourner Truth is overwritten with the text of her speech "Ain't I a Woman?" On the left, the image of Abigail Adams is overwritten with the text of a letter to her husband imploring him to consider the rights of women while drafting the Declaration of Independence. #InternationalWomensDay #IWD2017 #BeBoldForChange
