Vancouver-based art and design student Rosea Posey shot “Judgments,” a provocative photo of the back of a woman’s leg marked with skirt-length decency levels, starting with “matronly” on up to “whore.”
I took this last year, but in retrospect, I think it’s my strongest piece from high school.
Working on this project really made me examine my own opinions, preconceptions and prejudices about “slutty” women and women who choose to cover all of their skin alike. I used to assume that all women who wore Hijabs were being oppressed, slut-shame, and look down on and judge any woman who didn’t express her sexuality in a way that I found appropriate.
I’d like to think I’m more open now.
