Whats under your Bonnet?

IMG_20131125_114620s

This was a fun project…I used a vintage 1960’s New idea magazine to cut out found words, phrases and images. Looking at my finished piece now, I can see the composition is all over the place with no central focal point and may change it in the future

I found the articles really funny and sometimes quite pathetic, on how women were seen and treated 50 years ago

Being a baby boomer myself, I remember going to rallies and protests for women’s rights in the 60s-70s

It makes you realize how far women have come since…
