About the Colors

The banner for the Feminist Digital Center is designed to reflect aspects of the FDC’s intentions.

The shades of green on the left side represent the reproductive rights and abortion rights movement, a color that originates from the activism of feminists in Argentina. It has spread across Latin America and the world.

The light purple and lavender shades in the center represent the LGBTQIA+ community, as lavender and purple are historically significant colors in queer history to symbolize and flag queer identity and spaces.

The dark purple on the right side represents the University of Washington, Bothell, as a way of recognizing where these projects were developed and why they are housed here.

Together, these colors are more than aesthetically pleasing; they speak to the nature of inclusion that student-based feminist research and writing at UWB emphasize and embody.
