China

Photobucket
This poster is the first of the series "A Woman's World". All posters are similar in illustrative style and portray the victim as the main subject, with the countries flag in the background. My goal was to make the posters both horrifying and beautiful.
This poster is a response to China's gender selection. Because boys are so much more desirable than girls in a country were couple's can only have one child, they are aborting female fetuses and even going so far as killing the newborns upon birth. The sentence under the header reads, "over the last two years, more than 3,000 babies have been murdered because they were female."
