I collaged  these images of strong women and feminist women with images of Sheela na gigs. The women from popular culture I chose have been vilified by social media and the press for being outspoken, ageing, sexually autonomous and for being feminists. The distortion resembles censorship, as these women have had pressure to stop them from speaking out. 

The Sheela na gig looks to me as if the figure is shouting with her vagina. The women I have collaged with this figure are women who have been oppressed by people trying to silence them. These new hybrid images of women who have been hassled are turned into goddess-like figures, powerful witches with magical shouting cunts, making connections throughout social, political and art history to the current struggle to be free of sexism and patriarchy.
