I study Design and we recently got a research-assignment dealing with “Global Fashion”. Within this project, I also try to cover up the topic of “Stereotypes”. And as it’s been a really stupid discussion in our class before, I want to do my assignment in a way to fight against the (sadly still very common) stereotype of a feminist.
So I’ll try to answer the question “What does a feminist (also) look like?”, and it would be SO great if you girls and guys could help me out!
If you want to help me, please sent me a photo of you with the sentence:
“THIS IS WHAT A FEMINIST LOOKS LIKE!”
written either on your body/arm or a sheet of paper/cardboard or or a shirt or something similar. Sent your photo to: oh_rainy_day[at]gmx[.]de
EDIT Since I received a message expressing concern about my project:
I don’t want to imply that there is anything wrong with looking like a “stereotype”-feminist. If you look that way and still want to participate, please do so! It’s not my goal to say that one look is more “right” or “better” than another. I just want to show that there are thousands of different ways too like like, and that you still can be a feminist; in short: that your look, your clothes or you Make-up don’t change the fact that you are a feminist.
-> The photo should be at least a portrait.
-> EVERYONE who wants to can participate!
-> Your photos will not be used anywhere else than in the sketchbook/collage I use for my assignment. Only my professor at university will look at them, and it will not be published anywhere else without your permission!
-> If you want me to, I can include your name and the country/city I live in. But you don’t have to give me this information.
-> The deadline for this project is 28th of November. Since I need to print and work with them, please sent me your photo till 27th of November!
I know that there are plenty of similar photos on the internet/tumblr, but I really want to use photos I got the permission for using them!
If you have any questions on this project, please feel free to ask me!
