The Future is Female – by Marci Brockmann

Mixed Media: Acrylic paint and collage on canvas 16” x 20” (unframed)

The Future is Female is a pastiche of a Picasso work called Woman with a Book (1932). It is a female resting in a chair reading a book. I borrowed the "Future is Female" from a popular saying for the book cover. “The future is female” is a phrase that was invoked often by Clinton’s supporters during her campaign for president and in recent years has become a rallying cry.  Its originators — all lesbian feminists — coined the phrase to support their activism and had it printed on merchandise to fund their efforts of feminism and female empowerment.

The other collage aspect of this work is a picture of Women's Social and Political Union (WPSU) members and suffragettes Annie Kenney and Christabel Pankhurst, heroic suffragettes from the women-only political movement and leading militant organization campaigning for women's suffrage in the United Kingdom from 1903 to 1917. This was concurrent to the growth of the feminist movement in the United States. I picked this picture because of the sign these two women are holding – “votes for women” - which is directly representational of the 19th amendment ratification.
