Proceeds Benefit the Women's Center of Wake County

"The Women’s Center of Wake County, Inc. is a multi-services resource center that addresses the challenging issues of poverty and homelessness for single women and women with families. Through the provision of basic needs services, engagement with and assessment of clients, and housing placement and support services, the Women's Center provides the bridge between despair and hope for women and families."

The grainy picture is of Bobbi Gibb, the first woman to run the Boston Marathon. She qualified and applied for the race in 1966, but received a letter informing her that women were not permitted and "not physiologically able." She went anyway, snuck into the race - took to the streets, as it were - and finished in the top third of runners. Suck it, Patriarchy.
