The challenge was
Empower women everywhere.
Change the status quo with your next challenge.
Art is powerful. It influences our culture and speaks to us in profound ways. Most importantly, it challenges the status quo. For too long, the patriarchy has upheld a social and political system that largely favors men and perpetuates oppressive gender roles and stereotypes. With your art, you can shed light on these societal issues and help foster a world that’s more equitable for everyone, including women, trans folks, and nonbinary people.
For this Design Challenge, we want to see what smashing the patriarchy looks like to you. To get started, really hone in on the message you want to convey. Then start creating! You could focus on subverting stereotypical gender roles seen throughout history. Or, you can create a new design that empowers women while taking on issues such as beauty expectations, consent, and calling out sexist behavior. If you don’t want to leave anything up to interpretation, you can also deliver a blunt message in bold typography, like “DEMAND EQUAL PAY.” Be as bold as you want to be!
Uplift all women with the next Design Challenge!
