This week’s guest curator is Diana Ghanavat- Khozestan who has used Sam Shendi ‘Keyhole Men’ to create a display which portrays gender inequality. She has used the ‘Keyhole Men’ as she feels they accurately represent men and women and their individuality and unique personalities.
Here are some words from the curator………….
"In this week’s window display I am inspired by gender inequality as I feel that I am surrounded by it. Have you ever noticed that no matter how hard we try men and women will never be completely equal? Simple things such as how men rarely ever have to cue up to use the toilets whereas, women do shows us how men and women are just too different to be equal."
"Even though, we try to keep the equality between ourselves the world still has not fully accepted this. For instance, places like Saudi Arabia where women are not allowed to drive may sound ridiculous but further highlights how the world around us is still far from equality. We may dream of a day where gender is no longer an issue and where both men and women may stand side by side on an equal platform. Yet, women have constantly been side lined throughout history and even in today’s society and in some cases seen as weak and unimportant. I think this is conveyed in the window display and shows my thoughts and feelings towards equality with men and women in today’s society."
