Women have been affected by relentless oppression and harsh stereotypes throughout history.

My subject focuses on women and the notion that there cannot be one type of woman, emphasising the stupidity of labelling.

Through the experimentation of collage, I have combined an assortment of images of women that have been chosen for their positive, powerful and diverse qualities. The use of distortion and manipulation of images is used in each collage to go against the idealistic, airbrushed fantasy that technology has brought upon us.

The juxtaposition of pictures and text helps to uncover that although women have come a long way, there are still many obstacles to overcome.
