Anlu Is Protest

The omnipresence of the media is molding is molding our perception of the present debate on the social position on the current state of the relationship between genders. My inspiration is drawn in by the historical struggles of the women of the Kom ethnic group in the Northwest of Cameroon and in Africa in large. They deemed it necessary to balance the patriarchal political powers by righting the transgressions against women by ostracizing the offender through various creative methods. Their movement reminds us of the importance of nurturing, protecting, and engaging society in their interactions with women. In the age of quick galvanization by the media, forms of women’s resistance, such as Anlu, is a reminder of the power and influence that women wield in contemporary society. I present this exhibition as homage to their continued struggle.
