It’s a tee. It’s a dress. It’s the new Graphic T-shirt Dress.

Story within a Story

From
Vicki’s
Jack
in old London
to
last night
in Soho

the hate
is
just as deep

the fear
is
just as fierce

the box
is
just as square

the blood
is
just as red

and

you
are
just as dead.

Artist's Description

This is a story within a story – it’s the story of Jack the Ripper mutilating and killing prostitutes and other serial (women) killers like him but also the story of feminism. There’s still a lot of fear and hate about and people are still boxing women in – from the models in the magazines (all looking pretty and ever so sexy) to women being told they cannot have abortions in the States… there’s still a lot of work to do and some of it is realising that there is still a lot of work to do.

I am not saying no achievements have been made, but sometimes I wonder how deep they go and how many of the preconceptions and misconceptions of women seem to just have received different, more acceptable labels.
