Rape (All Images NFS)
Tolerating sexual assault of women is a worldwide, humanitarian tragedy. Of particular concern to me, and what my images address, is excusing the crime of rape by suggesting the assault was invited, predictable, or somehow consensual. The subtext of rape is domination and humiliation achieved through power and control and feelings of entitlement. Women must be recognized as individuals, not sexual objects, property or otherwise defined exclusively by gender.
