Artwork: “Women Are Perfect” by Jessica Sabogal
Curated by Professor Emerita Elizabeth Resnick, Graphic Design with Massachusetts College of Art and Design, the “Women’s Rights Are Human Rights” exhibit runs through February 18 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays in Phebe Conley Gallery.
The exhibition features posters created by both men and women to celebrate the critical role that all citizens should play in promoting human rights, challenging gender inequality, advancing sexual and reproductive rights and protecting women and girls from violence.
“[G]ender inequalities remain deeply entrenched in every society. Women lack access to decent work and face occupational segregation and gender wage disparities. Women are often denied access to basic education and health care, suffer from violence and discrimination, and are under-represented in political and economic decision-making processes,” said Resnick.
The exhibition kicks off a series of spring semester lectures and inspires students to create posters focused on social justice. Additional events include:
- Sabiha Basrai presents her virtual lecture “Social Justice Artist and Designer” at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb 1 on Zoom.
- Amos Kennedy presents his virtual lecture “Letterpress Artist and Printmaker known for social activism posters” at 4 p.m. Thursday, Feb 17 on Zoom.
- From April 6 to April 30, the exhibition will display Social Justice Poster Project’s student posters in the Dean’s Gallery.
