acrylic on paper; 11×14”
“My art piece is about women’s rights to choose what they want to do with their bodies. I used the yin and yang symbol to capture both sides of the gender roles opinions. When women are not allowed a say in what they can do with their bodies after effects may occur and that cause health issues such as depression, anxiety, mental distress.”

PROJECT: After learning about human rights in Mrs. Valerie Folz’ Government classes at Butler Tech School of the Arts, 45 high school students chose a human rights issue they wanted to research.
