feminist graffiti

Steven Tartick’s photo montage of the graffiti (and counter-graffiti) in an SVA bathroom reminds me much of the long dialogues strewn about the halls at my alma mater.

First there is the well designed and printed decals quoting statistics meant to insight thoughtfulness about inequities in IT and graphic design. Then there are the comments scrawled on and around the decals critiquing the statements.

feminist graffiti

I find both rather poignant at times though some of the handwritten comments are rather low blows.

I remember hearing that in my school’s library there was an entire series of articles published in a newsletter format, regularly inscribed on the bathroom walls of the womens’ restroom. I wonder if they still exist.
