Women, non-binary, and human rights distress flags. I first created the woman distress flag symbol as a theraputic action for myself. Later I vectorized and tweaked the design to distribute on social media. Requests and further threats to human rights by the office of the US presidency prompted me to make new iterations to share and create a DIY file to let others create their own protest symbol.

Applications of the symbol were spread primarily through social media.
