Actually, I had not noticed the caption on the illustration. I thought the words on the illustration aptly captured this piece. When using an upsplash, my understanding is that you have to leave the credits as is. I assure you I had no hidden meaning in using this illustration and was not aware of the tagline until you brought it to my attention. Had I known and anticipated the potential for misleading readers, I would probably use another illustration. In fact, I realized two days ago that I interviewed Christine Ford three years ago and have photos of her which could have been used for this piece. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
