WHY DID YOU START CREATING THESE PIECES OF WORK?

I came across these advertisements online. As I was going through them, I kept thinking that I’m so glad I wasn’t living at that age where sexism was tolerated. But the more I read through these ads, the more I realized that a lot of these headlines could easily be Donald Trump quotes.

WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE DAMAGE THAT IS BEING DONE BY OUR PRESIDENT?

Trump’s “locker room talk” is extremely dangerous especially now since he is the president of the United States.

The way women are represented in the media has changed drastically since these advertisements were initially published. But Trump’s degrading language is taking women back to the “mad men” era.

HOW DO YOU THINK THE ART YOU CREATE HELPS THE CONVERSATION?

It gets people to stop for a minute and question a certain reality that they might have overlooked.

WHAT VERSION OF AMERICAN WOULD YOU LOVE TO BE A PART OF?

Any version but the current one.

WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE TO MILLENNIALS OUT THERE FEELING THIS WRATH OF HELPLESSNESS?

I will tell them that they have the chance to learn from this and make it right in 4 years.
