Artist Statement

A decade or so ago I read about a textile strike in Massachusetts in 1912, now often known as the “Bread and Roses strike” which united dozens of immigrant communities under the leadership of the Industrial Workers of the World. It was led to a large extent by women. The popular mythology of the strike includes signs being carried by women reading “We want bread, but we want roses, too!” as the women fought for fair wages, respect and dignified conditions. This struck a chord with me and I remember thinking that if I ever got around to designing my own artwork inspired by these women, it will be that powerful image of bread and roses, of sustenance and beauty. "The rising of the women means the rising of us all.” — Rebecca Scambler
