WOMEN OF CHANGE COIN — USA
This coin – featuring the first woman elected to Congress, Jeannette Rankin – will be the second of a global series of “Women of Change” coins to launch, on the eve of International Women’s Day. This physical coin made of pure silver, serves also as a representation of a digital wallet, for storing cryptocurrencies and other digital assets. Every coin sold will benefit women’s empowerment projects around the world.

The SDG5 Global Alliance is thrilled to announce Kristin Simmons as our new Artist in Residence! Simmons' work is as acerbic, provocative, and as unapologetically clever as it is empathetic and vulnerable. Her visual creations inspire conversations around conflicting social expectations and realities; women’s equality being the inspiration of several new pieces to emerge in the coming weeks.
51% of the words visual artist are women, but only 5% of their work make up permanent collections. We want that to change.
