Honoring Shirley Chisholm, the first African American Woman to serve in the United States Congress (seven terms 1969-83).

“I do things that need to be done, that others don’t have the guts, stamina or audacity to do.”

Shirley Chisholm was a charismatic and outspoken Brooklyn educator and politician. “Fighting Shirley” was a tireless advocate for her constituents, quotable and stylish and unyielding. She definitely placed some cracks in the glass ceiling for all women who came after her to further assail.


Never Ever Ever Give Up! is a quote I have repeated for the last 30 years as an entrepreneur in technology and this art design was a pure joy to create. From the inception of the design, I wanted to illustrate a female hand smashing through the glass ceiling of the patriarchy. I loved working on the adornment of the “brass knuckles” - designed with a tough feminine attitude. I added an extra “Ever” in this phrase, because that's just what it takes for women...more of everything to be heard, to achieve and gain self-fulfillment. So, here’s to all of us women who have given it our all, put on our brass knuckles and found a way to smash through the world’s and society’s proverbial glass ceilings.
