Columbia City, you’re so lucky! That’s What She Said 206 is a perfect example of feminism and craftivism at its absolute BEST! I’m so inspired and excited to share this!

“Someone has created bright, beautiful portraits of influential women, speaking powerful quotes, and hung them all over the neighborhood. For a moment, inspiration and happiness replace the uncertainty and sadness of pandemic. There are glittery, neon-framed portraits of women like Michelle Obama, Ijeoma Oluo, Lindy West, and Malala Yousafzai. The art is as beautiful as it is deeply meaningful.”The South Seattle Emerald.
