In response to the commonly held belief in the early 1900s that men should have the right to vote because they bear arms, women’s suffrage activist Anne Dallas Dudley said, “Yes, but women bear armies.” This phrase inspired the conversations about voting that Thaxton Waters II had with North Nashville community members, which in turn informed Women Bear Armies but Still . . . , the diptych he created for the exhibition We Count: First-Time Voters.
