Design Discourse: Design for Women’s Equality
Women waged a long — and ongoing — fight for equal rights. Sometimes the fight has been loud and sometimes the it’s been quiet, but it’s always been brave. Design has helped to make this movement more powerful. Its role in the fight for equal rights is what we’ll be talking about in this Design Discourse.

The Salem Witch Trials
