In honor of Women’s History Month and ahead of International Women’s Day, the Washington Post’s women-focused publication, known as The Lily, has unveiled a brand new mural in Washington, D.C. Located at Union Market, at the corner of 4th Street NE and Neal Place NE, this mural showcases the phrase, “We’re getting louder.” According to the mural’s announcement on the Washington Post, the purpose of the artwork is to “foster conversation among women about the issues that affect them.”

The artist behind the mural is Annica Lydenberg of Dirty Bandits, with art direction by The Lily’s Amy Cavenaile. The mural will stay in place through the end of May.

In a statement, Amy King, editor-in-chief and creative director of The Lily, said, “The Lily aims to give women a voice, and with this mural, we are taking this mission out into the physical world.”

The most recent artworks that have been installed at Union Market include a mural by Yoko Ono from September 2017 and a “#KindComments” mural from October 2017.
