"I took this last year, but in retrospect, I think it’s my strongest piece from high school. Working on this project really made me examine my own opinions, preconceptions and prejudices about “slutty” women and women who choose to cover all of their skin alike.

I’d like to think I’m more open now."

Fear of a name only increases fear of the thing itself. Feminism is nothing to be afraid of.
