In honor of Women's Equality Day 2021, we have created a custom print featuring newspaper articles from the 1910s and 1920s covering the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment guaranteeing American women their right to vote. The Jovita Scarf is a limited edition item honoring storytellers, female journalists who share our stories and bring awareness to women's history. May we all use our voices to make a difference.
10 percent of proceeds will benefit the International Women's Media Foundation, working with women journalists and photographers all over the world to train them in reporting in underserved areas and on issues affecting women.
"Educate a woman and you educate a family." - Jovita Idar, a Mexican American journalist, activist and suffragist who protected her newspaper headquarters when the Texas Rangers came to shut it down and who fought for equal rights for Mexican Americans and for women.
