Nov.18.2022, Shanghai ------ Iconic Moments, the first NFT marketplace dedicated entirely to cultural institutions, is producing a collection of 5,000 NFTs based on the iconic American "Jailed for Freedom" pin. Dubbed Modern Rebels, the campaign will support the Women's Suffrage National Monument Foundation's (WSNMF) congressionally authorized mission to bring the first-ever national monument dedicated to the early American movement for women's equality to Washington D.C.
The jail pin symbol will take on new life as part of the Modern Rebels collection, with artistic interpretations of the pin's jail cell door and heart-shaped padlock provided by artist Lexie Baker. The collection spans across two rarity tiers and a variety of traits; each NFT is unique.
Modern Rebels also serves as a way to bring artists together for a common cause. Baker's digital art is accompanied by artisan metalworker Michelle Keller's bespoke, custom jail pin necklace. Each collector who purchases a Modern Rebels NFT will receive one of these limited-edition, handcrafted pieces of jewelry that — like the NFTs — evokes the rebellious spirit of the Jailed For Freedom pin worn by suffragists over a century ago.
Casual collectors and NFT enthusiasts alike will have the opportunity to participate in the Modern Rebels campaign and directly contribute to the efforts of the Women's Suffrage National Monument Foundation as the collection will be available via a simple, one-click credit card purchase experience.
Iconic Moments is the first and only NFT marketplace that captures stories and moments in history, media, pop culture, art, and collectibles, securing them on the blockchain as dynamic collections of NFTs.

The Women's Suffrage National Monument Foundation leads the effort to fund, design, develop, and construct the congressionally authorized Women's Suffrage National Monument. The monument will serve as a lasting legacy of the longest political movement in American history and honor the generations of women who protested in their decades-long fight for equality.
The Women's Suffrage National Monument Foundation is supported by all living First Ladies — Dr. Jill Biden, Mrs. Melania Trump, Mrs. Michelle Obama, Mrs. Laura Bush, Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton, and Mrs. Rosalynn Carter — as Honorary Chairs.
