“Equal Rights, Flower of Democracy”
18 x 24 offset poster
Join us on Women’s Equality Day, August 26th at The Outrage in the nation’s capitol Washington DC from 2 pm to 6 pm. It’s a kick-off party where Vote Equality launches a massive Southern voter drive. In celebration, The Outrage is releasing my new offset, 18 x 24 version of “Equal Rights, Flower of Democracy” poster. It will be available at The Outrage, and throughout the Southern tour from Vote Equality.
The Vote Equality voter drive tour bus is designed by me (layout: Rachel Welsh de Iga). It features my poster design “Equal Rights, Flower of Democracy” at 7 feet tall, filling the back of the tour bus. My intricate flower patterns cover the bus, which is affectionately known as the Notorious RVG. See below:
Vote Equality will tour North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida on the first leg of their tour throughout the Southern US to activate and register voters. A second leg continuing through the South to be announced.
I am incredibly proud to give my art to the design of this legendary election bus on a historical mission in the midterm elections of 2022. It’s my aim to put my art into action: this is a giant tour with an important message of equality.
The Outrage will be releasing my “Equal Rights, Flower of Democracy” 18 x 24 offset posters at the event on Friday, August 26, 2022, at 2 pm to 6 pm — and after the party online through their online store. Money raised goes to Vote Equality.

About the poster:
Equality is the flower of democracy. Passing the Equal Rights Amendment—at long last—will be the path to gender equality for our American democracy. I am grateful to be called upon to include my voice in the collective call to bring about gender equality by amending the Constitution with passage of the ERA, and I was quick to reach out to fellow artists to join the call to action.
Clio is the Muse of history, daughter of memory. I suggest we remember where we came from, how we got here, who we are, and where we are going. History is not only a collection of objective facts; history is also a story. How we organize those objective facts says a lot about who we are, or who we want to be.
