Hold The Fuck Up

By Tristan Pigott




Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman-Hughes, 1972 and 2014

Both by Dan Bagan

Wanna see my cry like a baby? Ask me who these women were.

Hughes’ father was beaten nearly to death by the KKK when she was a kid, and what does she do? Become an activist to try and stop that from happening to other people. She raised money to bail civil rights protesters out of jail. She helped women get out of abusive situations by providing shelter for them until they got on their feet. She founded an agency that helped women get to work without having to leave their children alone, because childcare in the 1970s? Not really a thing. In fact, a famous feminist line in the 70s was “every housewife is one man away from welfare.”

Then she teamed up with Steinman to found the Women’s Action Alliance, which created the first battered women’s shelters in history. They attacked women’s rights issues through boots on the ground activism, problem solving, and communication. They stomped over barriers of race and class to meet women where they were: mostly mothers who wanted better for themselves and their children.

These are women are who I always wanted to be.

Designing and anything visual has always come natural to me. But what hasn’t, is music. I’ve never played an instrument and I don’t sing or write, but I’ve always had a great appreciation for music. I started this as a personal/passion project, not only to celebrate the catchiest lyrics from some of my favorite artists, but also to expand my musical horizons through lyric requests and exploring different genres. And it’s pretty fun too. Enjoy - RM

I can’t go on,
These limbs have grown too heavy;
I need that song,
A night on earth could pull me through.
And early on,
They saw the warning signs
And symptoms all day long.

Wonder how far from here we’ll fall.
