Favianna Rodriguez: 3 New Posters for the Woman Bashing Year
I have long been a huge fan of Favianna Rodriguez’s activist art, and her work with Presente, a “a national organization that exists to amplify the political voice of Latino communities.” Every image she makes gives me goosebumps with just how on point it is, and every email I get from Presente‘s email list contains such relevant, educational material that I read it as soon as I open it. Take a second to check out her blog, Presente, and her art. I’ll leave you with a quote of hers about making these three pieces:
“From men and women alike, I have heard that my ideas around sexuality are impractical, they could never work, and that I’ll never find a “man” who would accept the things I want to explore. Quite simply, what I want is to be able to be my full sexual self, in my full potential. I don’t want to constrain myself to heterosexist, and religion-based constructs that have for centuries said that women are men’s property, and therefore, one has to be with only one person, preferably for life (marriage). It’s not that I don’t believe one could have a life partner – it’s that I don’t want to be restrained by a model of how things HAVE TO BE. And monogamy is one of those models.”
