Everyday Sexism

An area I’m often drawn back to is everyday sexism and broaching the topic of women's experiences in public space, both contemporary and historically.  Initially sparked by the emergence of the #metoo movement, I felt this sudden need to express deep routed anxiety that most women face walking the streets at night or even daytime. Books such as Laura Bates, Everyday Sexism - Ariel Levy,  Female Chauvinist Pigs: Women and the Rise of Raunch Culture  - Rebecca Solnitt's chapter on night walking in Wanderlust all underpinned the concept behind the work.  

Mediums consist of experimental darkroom, embroidery, photograms, solarisation, and digitally scanned self hand portraits.
