• I see this is from 2013 but I'd like to pick your brain about some of this discussion as well. I am doing a piece based on manners and the concepts and habits society has created for themselves. So not only am I researching details on men and women's "roles" but how they interact. Just looking around to see if you might can give me some info you've found. Hope to hear from you soon.

    • Hi Sarah,

      Where are you based? I would love to chat about this a lot more. It's very interesting.

      If you would like I will happily write something on this and send it to you - this is right up my street!!

    These are the rations of Abuses on women according to U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics.

     Today women are consider as just a tool to play with and thrown away after use. We have to stop it.

    • What a powerful post, thank you. 

      Yes we do need to stop it and it is so refreshing to be speaking to fellow artists who see the same inequality as I see on a daily basis.

      The most disgusting part for me is that Ukip, the political party England just voted for in the European elections, want to make RAPE and ABUSE LEGAL in a relationship. They are a bunch of racist, sexist white men who need to be stopped before they are voted in the General Elections.

  • wow, can work together!

    • Hi Sangeeta,

      I have only just been able to log back on and see this! Would you still like to work together? Where are you based?

      This is a link to TheWomanDelusion, the first of many pieces I wish to make in trying to understand exactly how women are treated. This is based on my experience in culture and relationships etc: 

      Let me know because I would absolutely love to work together.
