Two weeks ago my daughter had an assignment at art college. She drew these three sketches and put them with the words of a poem by Darshan Mondkar. I found what she did to be incredibly powerful and pertinent. It deals with current issues about the treatment of women. I am sharing with my daughter’s permission. (I have put a ‘read more’ tag as not everyone may want to read this post, however there are no offensive or graphic images or words in this post.)
The text reads:
“Was it my fault?” asked the short skirt.
“No, it happened to me too,” replied the Burkah.
The diaper in the corner couldn’t even speak.
Talk to your daughters. Talk to your sons. Talk to each other. Tell them not to drink the kool-aid, and certainly not to drink the punch.
