Enjoying art is like enjoying fruit. You don’t need an education to know which fruit you like. You could travel around the world and become a fruit connoisseur, learning about growth, sun, hydration, wind, soil, transportation, nutrients, combinations, chemistry, ancestry, but you don’t need this knowledge to enjoy fruit. The same goes for art. Don’t let anyone tell you you should “know more” before you can form an opinion.

The competition closes on Monday 1st September.

aaah!


We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls, ‘You can have ambition, but not too much. You should aim to be successful, but not too successful. Otherwise you will threaten the man.’ Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support. But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same? We raise girls to see each other as competitors – not for jobs or for accomplishments, which I think can be a good thing, but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are.
