Wise Words from Maya Angelou

Maya Angelou Quote Rachel Jacobson lettering
Each time a woman stands up for herself, she stands up for all women.
— Maya Angelou

Since I spend a lot of time penning women's words, many that I admire, I thought I'd kick off a series of Words & Faces. April is Maya Angelou's birth month (April 4, 1928 to be exact), so before we slip into May, I wanted to honor this woman and her influential work. Early this morning, I poured a cup of tea and pulled out my calligraphy supplies to write out my quote of choice in brush lettering. 

I'd love to know, what women do you look up to? Who would you like to see featured?
