Washington, D.C. – Begun in 2013, SHE-SPAN commemorates the record number of women sworn into Congress that January with a series of pointillist portraits posted around Washington, D.C. The artist, Stephanie Rudig (also known as “Judy Doom”) was underwhelmed by this record, which meant that only 19% of the 113th Congress was female, she told Huffington Post. The 114th Congress, inaugurated in January 2015, is not much different at only 20%. Rudig started SHE-SPAN by drawing Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton of D.C., and proceeded through the list, posting the portraits on streets corresponding to the women’s home states when possible. A map on the project website shows the locations of the portraits around the city.
