In his last book Man meets woman (“Man meets woman” would be the Spanish translation), the Chinese artist Yang Liu reflects and makes a scathing critique of certain gender stereotypes, through a series of funny pictograms in which the tendency of our culture to adopt unequal treatment to measure different attitudes or behaviors according to the sex of the performer is highlighted.
In this series of pictogramsFantastically done, you can see how culture modulates the thinking of society to impose certain standards based on certain aspects or personal characteristics of each.
Gender bias, still in effect
Why the girl who has a lot of sex is one libertine, And yet a guy who knots a lot is considered a attractive? Do men speak little and directly and are women more complicated and indirect in their communication? These and 13 other gender prejudices dramatically addressed by the Chinese visual artist.
We hope these images come to life the debate on sexual stereotypes that in the middle of the 21st century, our societies are still suffering. One more step towards a society more aware of sexism, micro-masculinities and, in short, the different forms of discrimination and inequality.
