This illustration has been created in response to the notion of the male gaze and the belief that, within society, men can take ownership of a woman’s body in society. Woman are continually portrayed in the media through the eyes of the man – in a way in which they are shown as most attractive to men. In turn, this promotes the idea that men have a type of intangible ownership of the female body. This illustration hopes to deconstruct this concept and help women to take ownership & control of their own bodies!
