Athena, the Goddess of Wisdom and Strength arises on a small patch of garden to guard her property- her house which stands amidst green and foliage and leaves – the abundance of the earth – to withstand all evils that try to encroach!
This drawing was a response to the Supreme Court’s evisceration of a woman’s right to make an autonomous decision concerning her body. The Dobbs decision, relying on the 18th century jurisprudence of the misogynist Matthew Hale overturned precedential case law. I feel attacked by predators such as Amy Cohen Barrett and Brett Kavanaugh who lied under oath and elected officials who act like slimy red ants thinking they have the right to crawl all over my body. I am threatened by the oversized reach of Mitch McConnell and the GOP. And yet I believe justice will be meted out and Athena will prevail.
