I chose to pursue bread as a way of voting because I wanted people to get to have a vote even if it was just through a social media platform. Social media has become such a huge way of staying connected throughout the isolation of Covid-19, so it felt good to use that to my advantage. Sharing bread designs and bringing people into the kitchen felt like a soft reminder of the gender roles often assigned to women and that women were disenfranchised for longer than they've been allowed to vote in the USA. There are so many reasons a person could be disenfranchised, and it felt important to connect people through an ancient and calming practice that nourishes the mind and soul. Getting to choose a design means people get to put their voice out there.
