Readers of The New Yorker may have noticed a pinback button featured prominently in the April issue. The Busy Beaver Button Museum was honored to have a 1970’s women’s rights button from our collection featured in the header of Susan Faludi’s article, “Death of a Revolutionary,” about the life of activist Shulamith Firestone.
Busy Beaver founder and Button Museum curator Christen Carter said of the feature, “I always love to see buttons in print and was really excited to contribute to the New Yorker article. That button was from such a politically charged time and I just love that it’s in there doing exactly want we want the Button Museum to do, to share these graphic representations of milestones in history.”
