‘Peeling Back the Silence’
“This is a watercolor piece, portraying three individuals of different ethnic groups and genders, that demonstrates how the victims of sexual assault and harassment vary.
“The individuals are removing tape from their mouths to signify victims finding the courage to come forward.
“Having more than one person in the piece shows the unity within the movement and how rape culture affects more than just a few people.”
—Graciella Delgado is a 17-year-old artist in Houston, Tex.
‘A Collection of Body Parts’
“I was around 15 and a man approached me on the street, said he liked my shoes. I thanked him.
“He then began to list every other part of me he liked (legs, mouth, hair, everything), following me down the street as I tried to leave the conversation. First by politely excusing myself, then by breaking into a run.
“That was the first time I felt myself seen as nothing but a collection of body parts. It wasn’t the last.”
— Alicia Tatone is a graphic designer in Brooklyn, N.Y.
‘Oh Yeah, Me Too’
“The cartoon is pretty self-explanatory, but for me it’s just about how women who share stories often find out that we all often experience the same pain, no matter how different our backgrounds.”
—Hilary Campbell is a cartoonist in Brooklyn, N.Y.
‘Standing on the Patriarchy’
“I have my own lifetime of #MeToo experiences, and one response I have to the courage of those contributing to this uprising is the sense of pure joy and freedom when I imagine that culture is finally in ruins.
“There are serious aspects to this movement, but I want to show the inevitability and inherent positivity of its impact as something to be celebrated.”
—Kathleen Morris is a textile and collage artist in Australia.
‘If Walls Could Hear’
“I drew these sketches in a shelter for women and children escaping domestic violence. In order to preserve the privacy of women, I portrayed only their ears.
“The shape of our ears is unique, like our fingerprints. However near the partners are, they still can’t actually identify that shape.”
— Olga Prudnikova is a freelance illustrator in Berlin.
“I like that this piece shows that we as women are all a collective force, just as the ocean is a large force made up of individual water drops.”
— Caralena Peterson is a writer and artist in Washington, D.C.
“My image was inspired by the #MeToo Revolution, my personal experiences with the male gaze and a healthy amount of frustration and repulsion. What I hope to convey in this image is the sense of verbal, physical and energetic male ownership that is placed on women in society.”
— Beata Kruszynski is a freelance illustrator and art teacher in Ontario, Canada.
‘Body As Object’
“By hiding the dolls’ faces, I hoped to highlight how the objectification of girls’ bodies takes away their identities.”
— Dora Guo is a high school student in Lincolnshire, Ill.
