Sit Like a Lady

Sit Like a Lady

Sit Like a Lady is a visual metaphor for the practice of ‘wo+manspreading.’ This series portrays female figures in confident and powerful body positions, often associated with men. By portraying women in these ‘wide’ positions with dominant body language, I challenge the customary gender stereotypes of ‘a powerful position’ for a man being ‘a sexual signal position’ for a woman.

 

If the simple way that one sits can trigger an unfair judgment and assumption, it is time to pause and learn to evaluate people as individuals rather than as an archetype of a gender, racial, or social group.
