In honor of Women’s History Month, Brennan Library has displayed a series of photographs that feature well-known, female liberal politicians.  The display features headshots of four women who appear on the March edition of Rolling Stone Magazine: Ilhan Omar, Jahana Hayes, Nancy Pelosi, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.  The display, though done in good faith is a catalyst for conservative marginalization.
