Emotional Weight Ant
Emotional labour is done disproportionately by women. And on top of that, because it is done disproportionately by women, it is denigrated and rarely recognised as the exhausting work that it is. Every woman I know does much more than her fair share of emotional work, and most men that I know do far less than they should. A useful myth that maintains this imbalance is that women are much better at emotional work. The reality is that we train girls to take on emotional labour and make them value it in a way that boys are never expected to.
One of an open edition of giclée prints. Printed on 300gsm lightly textured, acid-free cotton rag paper.
The printed area (excluding the border) is 15cm x 15cm. These look great in an 8 inch square frame (I recommend black wood, but you do you). The frame is not included (but you can get them cheap online).
This print will be signed by the artist, Henry James Garrett.
£5 from the sale of each print sold online will be split between the following charities: Mermaids, Rape Crisis National Helpline, Give Directly, Stonewall, and Southall Black Sisters.
(The print does not have the @drawingsofdogs watermark on it. That's just in case people share the images from the shop.)
