This ephemera is from the original supersisters trading card set which aimed to empower women and girls by highlighting accomplished women in a wide variety of fields. The cards were created by sisters  Lois Rich and Barbara Egerman after Lois’ 8-year old daughter, Melissa, asked why there weren’t any women on baseball trading cards. This card features Shirley Chisholm, the first Black woman to be elected to the Congress of the United States. Chisholm championed the rights of Black and working class Americans. She is also the first Black woman to run for President of the United States.
