Zahra Al-Mahdi: Rescue Her Print


Poster Description:

“This poster illustrates the correlating histories between stray animals and women. Strays were considered pariahs that parents warned their children against. This negative view contrasts with how strays are viewed now: creatures that need care and shelter. Women are a different case. While recent women’s empowerment movements aim to eliminate the image of a “lesser sex,” many neglect to grant marginalized subjects agency. Instead they aim to save/rescue women. This poster shows how the mythic character of 7marat ilGayla (a woman/donkey hybrid), associates both strays and women. Both viewed as rescues—we symbolically equate women to helpless animals, therefore helpless themselves and in need of saving.”
