Here in America, we are sometimes unaware of the happenings going on all over our globe. That is why the woman in my hexagon is clearly represented on the earth. Her outline created by a black ink pen, and the earth is created by colored pencils. We take for granted the freedom we have in America. Women here can vote, pick their spouse, and are given the opportunity for an exceptional education. In many countries in the middle east, none of those options are available for women. That is why I used sharpie to boldly represent the good and bad things that are happening in the middle east. While many organizations, and people are taking a stand for women, even just telling one person about the status of women in the middle east could help. The thought of not having control over your own basic rights sickens me.  I hope that even a small project can in some way affect someone else, and create a chain reaction to help those in need.

Your hexagon really stood out to me. I loved how you used words and a drawing to represent your issue. I also strongly agree with your issue, middle east women do deserve better rights. I liked how you showed all the different rights they hope to get in the future. Way to go :)

Delaney, this is a very powerful piece of artwork. I am also glad that you discussed our ignorance here in the United States.
