Everyday Self Defense



In stock

This is a one color linoleum block print. I made this print when I realized that nearly every one of my women friends (and myself) were in situations every day where we were having to deal with how our gender was being noticed and responded to by the world around us. It felt like every day, when my friends and I were talking with each other, that not a day went by where at least one of us had someone make a comment about us at work, or while just getting around the city, or with people we were being intimate with. This print is laid out comics style; in the left hand panel, a woman at work is being told by her co-worker "we don't often hire girls to do your job." The thought bubble says, "fuckin jerk, i work harder for half the pay." In the middle panel, a bike rider is yelled at by a stranger who yells, "Give me a ride" and retorts, "get your own!" and in the last panel, a woman is sitting up in bed next to her partner who has disrespected her wishes, and so she says, "I already said 'NO' twice. Get out of the bed." When I made this print, I was realizing that all the things we were all doing to get through the day involved self defense, therefore this print slogan is, "Just getting through the day involves self defense."
