David Trumble Recreates Classic Image for Women’s History Month

Posted by Alexis Washington

In honor of Women’s History Month, Motivational Speaker and famous cartoonist David Trumble was commissioned  by Women You Should Know to create an image that grabs the core history of feminism in this nation — which is — the struggle for the social, political and economic equality of the sexes.

From Women You Should Know website: “In honor of Women’s History Month, Women You Should Know commissioned award-winning cartoonist, author and illustrator, David Trumble to execute our vision for an original piece of art that would pay tribute to some of history’s most courageous women; fearless females who went out on a limb to speak out, to stand up, and to act in the fight for women’s rights and equality; pioneers who moved women’s history forward and thought leaders who continue to carry that torch. We are so proud to present … Feminism At Work.”



Continued from Women You Should Know website: “Spanning almost 200 years of U.S. history, from the mid-1800s through today, Feminism At Work captures the spirit of the women’s movement by highlighting some of its greatest champions – 12 in total – from different eras. Because they are the hands-on builders who set out to forge a better and more equal path for women everywhere, often putting themselves in precarious and unpopular positions in the process, the composition of the piece evokes the iconic 1932 black and white photograph Lunchtime Atop A Skyscraper, or more informally Men At Work. Believed to have been taken by photographer Charles Ebbets, it features 11 ironworkers eating lunch on a steel beam, dangling 850 feet above New York City’s streets, while on break from constructing the RCA building (now the GE building) in Rockefeller Center.”
