Note: This project is currently being updated to correct "womxn" to "women." While some people understandably may feel good identifying with "womxn," in terms of inclusivity "womxn" holds exclusionary connotations and incorrectly lumps together people of marginalized genders.
"The Alienable Rights of Women" is a theoretical exhibition at the National Women's History Museum with graphic design artifacts about women’s reproductive health from the twentieth century. From the design evolution of birth control to feminist zines, it show the ways women visually learn about their bodies, and in turn, the way women create art about their experiences as women. The concept behind the design materials focuses on the distinct circular pattern of birth control packages and the fragility of those reproductive rights. The title of the exhibition was inspired by a chapter in Roxane Gay's Bad Feminist, which highlights the politics of reproductive health and how it is not an inalienable right as it should be.
