The New Jersey Devils are making waves with their latest show of support for gender equality. During their warmup against the Toronto Maple Leafs, the team revealed a set of custom jerseys that were designed specifically for their Gender Equality Night.

Designed by Danielle Cartier, these stunning warmup jerseys feature a unique collage that was created using physical materials and scanned onto the fabric of the jerseys. According to Cartier, the artwork was created to showcase the beauty and diversity of all genders.

In her own words, Cartier said, "Through this jersey design, I hope to illuminate how all variations of gender are equally valid and unique through the art-making process of collage."

The New Jersey Devils' Gender Equality Night is more than just a gesture. It's a powerful statement that shows the team's commitment to making all hockey fans feel welcome and included. And the NHL as a whole has echoed this sentiment, claiming to be committed to inclusivity and diversity.

Unfortunately, the reality is that there is still much work to be done in order to achieve true gender equality in the world of hockey. Despite the progress that has been made, women still face significant barriers to participation in the sport, both on and off the ice.

The New Jersey Devils' Gender Equality Night is a step in the right direction, but it's important to remember that it's just one piece of the puzzle. We must continue to push for progress and inclusivity in all areas of the sport, from youth leagues to the professional level.

In the meantime, we can appreciate the beauty and power of these custom jerseys, and the statement that they make about the importance of diversity and inclusivity in all areas of our lives.
