Beckys Through History

BECKYS THROUGH HISTORY is an artistic response to the 53% of white women who cast ballots to elect Donald J. Trump in the November 2016 election and the majority of white women who voted for Roy Moore in the Alabama Senate special election of 2017.  It is an attempt to bring the discourse around white feminism vs. intersectional feminism and related issues into normal, day-to-day discussions and awareness.
