"Pink is for Girls" (2018)


Self-portraiture project confronting the gender inequality and the stereotyping that young women are surrounded with on a daily basis. The work confronts the feeling of being surrounded, drowning in sexist remarks, catcalling, and inequality. The colour pink is seen to symbolise not only the stereotyping of femininity with a colour, but also other gender issues that are in the forefront of our socio-political climate. With the rise of #metoo and increased media attention of the gender-pay-gap, the attention on gender equality is on the rise at the moment, and changes are starting to happen but still we are not equal and more is needed to be done.
