BFA Communication Design Exhibition Thesis– How does exploring parallels between ancient Egyptian women and today’s feminism help us highlight and unveil our own misconceptions, and can we shed light on gender equality by looking to the past?


This project explores the parallels between ancient Egypt and modern times and asks the question how much progress has been made? Gone for 2000 years, but ancient Egypt provides us with similar culture, religious, government and language systems. In our own modern infancy, many feel we are post inequality, but we are not. This work represents the past and the present moving in a cycle that connects parallels, and it encourages exploration that questions our own approach and ideas.
