NARAL Hand Drawn Playing Cards Celebrate Trailblazing American Women

In honor of Women’s History Month and coinciding with worldwide activities marking International Women’s Day, NARAL is relaunching The Gender Cards—a deck of illustrated playing cards that celebrate trailblazing American women. Each card is hand-drawn and unique, and recalls the incredible women—past and present—who have helped define the American spirit.

These cards feature some of the strong leaders, brilliant thinkers, fierce competitors, brave risk takers, and trailblazing innovators who achieved great things while always moving the nation forward.

“Now more than ever, it’s time to celebrate the trailblazing women who have always made America great,” said Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “One of my favorite things about The Gender Cards is seeing my friends and family post photos of their kids playing with the cards. These cards are not only beautiful to play with, they help us learn more about the women whose lives help tell the American Story. These really are the perfect gift.”

The Gender Cards make a great gift for friends and family, and are available only through NARAL. Get yours today at

Showcasing paintings by Karen Delvecchio-  Fish on Bicycles This show is inspired by life in southwestern Ontario and the feminist slogan: “A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle.”  The quotation is often attributed to author and activist, Gloria Steinem, but the true author remains unknown.  While a fish may not need a bicycle, the quotation inspires an image that is happy, humorous, and somewhat romantic.
