"I decided on reimagining the poster “Girls are powerful”, that I saw in a book cataloging the printed artwork made by the See Red Women's Collective, spanning from 1974 to 1990 because today's girls are in dire need (as I also was growing up) of life- affirming role models to counter the restrictive and deforming male visions we continue to be bombarded with. With the creation of this poster, I want to feed into a visual culture that allows girls to see their own greatness and potential! My greatest hope is for girls to not lose touch with the pleasure and joy of life, which comes through play, experimentation and by challenging ourselves and each other."
