I was pleased to learn that I won, and my poster will be featured in some branding and marketing materials throughout 2014.

The concept for this poster is a quote by Margaret Mead; “Every time we liberate a woman, we liberate a man.” The quote signifies that for many of the pressures a woman may face (i.e. attractiveness), there are similar pressures men can face (i.e. ‘manliness’)–all under the thumb of patriarchy. Every time a woman finds the voice to speak up for herself, it can assist a man who is finding himself suffering similar oppression, and thus push us all towards a better chance at uniting together for equality and destroying the patriarchy.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
