“Her Flag” Celebrates the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment

“The flag is often associated with men and their accomplishments, and over the years has become associated with conservative Americans. But the flag is supposed to represent all of us,” said visual artist Marilyn Artus.

For the creation of Her Flag, Artus planned to travel to all 36 states that voted to ratify, in order of ratification, over a time span of 14 months to work with the state artists creating a stripe for Her Flag and sewing it onto the 18- by 26-foot flag.

Meet the Feminist Artists Recreating the Iconic First Ms. Cover—Five Decades Later

In 1972, Miriam Wosk created the iconic first cover of Ms. magazine. Fifty years later, the Spring cover of Ms. pays homage to Wosk’s work.

The idea for the cover recreation was conceived by Ms. art director Brandi Phipps, who commissioned the project to D.C.-based artist Ashley Jaye Williams. Ms. digital editor Roxy Szal spoke to Phipps and Williams to see what it was like to pick up Wosk’s baton five decades later, their hopes for the cover’s impact on viewers, favorite Ms. covers over the years, and more.
