SURF—SELECT—SUPPORT

WREI will host an on-line sale of original antique prints from April 1–14. The sale will feature more than 40 prints from Harper’s Weekly, PUCK, and Ladies Home Journal by such artists as Charles Dana Gibson. These unique and colorful prints depict women’s pursuit for equality, early party politics, scenic Washington, D.C., and botanical vistas. Prices range from $120–$300 and come complete with acid-free, archival-quality matting cut to standard frame size. Mark your calendar for April 1st to visit WREI’s Virtual Art Gallery and support WREI with every historic purchase. Twenty-five percent of your total purchase will go directly to WREI and is tax-deductible as a contribution.

Did you know . . .

Last year, there were only 17,000 women carpenters—no more than in 1984. On the other hand, the number of women physicians more than doubled (from 83,000 to 176,000) between 1984 and 1999.
