The images represent how often coloured women are left out in feminist thought and how often white women are considered the voice for all women. Different coloured threads highlight different parts of the woman in the picture. The stitching around the shawl emphasizes her cultural and racial identity. The yellow and white threads highlight her features and represent the western cultural ideals of beauty, the construction of beauty through European ideals.
“We coloured women have different struggles and our fight for equality is not just gender based.”
