For our political posters, I chose sexual objectification of women as my social issue that I wanted to bring awareness too. A common saying when we objectify people is treating them as pieces of meat. I wanted my poster to show that kind of behavior such as cat calling and harassment is not cute, flirty or attractive. It is grotesque and disgusting to turn human beings into raw bloody pieces of meat. The mock of a Vogue magazine layout is another example of common sexual objectification of women in media.

Designed in Graphic Design class, I wanted to show that anyone can be a victim especially when it comes to mental illnesses because there might not always be obvious signs and if we continue to be willfully ignorant or silence those around us, we will all end up losing loved ones.
