No Burqa For Me Today


Pakistani artist Hoor Imad Sherpao. No Burqa For Me Today, Gouache and 24 Karat Gold on Wasli.

[Just to clarify, anyone who knows me, knows what I think of Western/white/imperial feminism. This is not a comment on how women should dress – short skirts are hardly indicative of liberation – but rather how women have the choice to wear whatever they want and how they have the freedom to change their minds. What I like about this painting is how tongue in cheek it is. It’s saying, today I want to dress up, I want to go over the top, I want to be fierce. That’s all. Peace ?]
