It seems to be increasingly difficult to talk about sexism, equality and women’s rights in our society. The point of this project is to show people that sexism is a huge problem. We defend the rights of women and social structure of women. It is faced by women every day and it is a valid problem to discuss. This project aims to take a step towards gender equality, by proving wrong those who tell women that they can’t complain because we are equal. The notion that women are not on the same level as men has been in existence.
Equality for all women in families and society. We girls have been brought up with that mentality that women must be protected from men at all cost; explain to little girls how to defend themselves, explain to them how to be strong and what sexual harassment and rape are, and how not to be a victim by staying home.
“You need to be safe! When you dress that way, some people read it as an invitation.”
“Never go out alone, never walk alone at night, never drink from an open beverage.”
“Be careful with the way you act and the way you dress — it’s easy to get a bad reputation.”
It’s about time we tell girls to do what they want, regardless of their gender or clothes. We need to stop slut-shaming women and sexually-praising men. People, regardless of their genders, are still people.
