US newspapers carry woman-in-headscarf protest ads
A poster-size image of a woman in a headscarf in the colors of the American flag appeared in full-page ads in several US newspapers Friday, part of a protest launched on the day of Donald Trump's presidential inauguration.
The image is the work of Shepard Fairey, a graphic artist famous for his "Hope" poster of Barack Obama. That portrait, also in red, white and blue, caused a sensation when it appeared during the 2008 presidential campaign.
The ads emblazoned with the woman's portrait appeared in Friday's editions of the New York Times and the Washington Post.
