Challenging Society’s Pressures

My independent project is called ‘Challenging Society’s Pressures’ and explores the struggles women must go through in everyday life and the stereotypes men and women face. I tried to break the stereotypes of modern society through my photography. I also tried to explore the things women are expected to do to fit into the patriarchal society we live in. My project also looks at topics like body image, stereotypes for both genders and feminism. I want to show how all women are different, yet we are all brought together by feminism and issues regarding how women are treated and seen in society. My project aims to bring women together and educate people on feminism but to also go against society’s gender standards. I also did this to show that it’s ok to go against standards and it’s normal not to have the ‘ideal body type’.
