March is Women’s History Month, and today is International Women’s Day. Last year, we marked the occasion with A Day Without a Woman, but this year I wanted to focus on something a bit more proactive. So I’m sharing a stationery round up focused on supporting and empowering women, from art prints to notebooks to greeting cards. Dear Hancock just released this stunning print with illustrations of the imagined desks of twelve historical women who provided great contributions to Fashion, Science, Astronomy, Art, Design, Aviation, Literature, Primatology and Women’s History. Dear Hancock worked with the foundations of each woman to create the illustrations, and prints with some of the individual illustrations (like the Georgia O’Keeffe desk) are being carried in their museum gift shops. Proceeds from the print will be donated to Time’s Up!
