Inspired by the UN Women ad campaign featuring google searches related to the word “woman,” Policy Mic’s Elizabeth Plank began a project that explores what the world thinks of feminists. When one Googles search terms related to feminism, the results are discouraging and often violent, but Plank’s images inspire hope as well.
Instead of expressing the silencing of women with the covering of their mouths, her images allow feminists to have a voice. Each woman featured is a prominent feminist activist, gazing boldly ahead. Although it’s an uphill battle and although the women’s mouths are obscured, a yellow highlighter marks what we might choose to say. Take a look, and let us know what you think in the comments!
