All over the world, a lot of people still can’t put up with the fact that Donald Trump has won presidental elections this November. Remembering his programme statements and hate-speech every time on debates, it’s hardly possible to believe that almost 63 million voters had chosen him for ruling USA next 4 years. With the goal to make people aware and join the protests against Trump, a 18-years old student Aria Watson created photo series of new president’s “iconic” phrases about women.

 

Speaking aloud with power

The project of Aria Watson represents quotes of Trump written on naked women. The way of writing and the whole concept symbolises the vulnerability of women in relation to society, that is still patriarchical in many aspects. Words in red color reflect the main substance of each quote. Friends and family members of the photographer posed for her, and Aria decided to keep them anonymous in order to show that these phrases could relate to any woman. Moreover, Watson posed herself in one of the pictures. The entire project has become her final graduate work for the Intro to Photography class in College.

‘As a proud feminist, hearing Trump say “grab them by the pussy” and talk about how he could do anything he wanted made me absolutely sick,’ she explained. To spread the issue not only in social networks, Aria launched the production with her photos – T-shirts,sweatshirts and even a postcard. The 15% of this trade profit invests to the American Civil Liberties Union in Donald Trump’s name.

Will America be great again?

Throughout all his career Trump is surrounded by sexy women: he owned a company that organises “Miss Universe”, “Miss USA”  and “Miss Teen USA” beauty contests. Models and other celebrities  were always extremely fascinated by his wealth, social status and influence. But does it give Trump a privilege on public harassment and humiliation of women? At least not on the president position. In USA, that is considered to be the one of the most tolerant and democratic country in the world, Trump’s behavior and views can cause a harmful effect on people’s common values. The prevention of such changes is our own duty.
