A Welcome For Women and A Welcome For Men

The piece entitled A Welcome for Women and A Welcome for Men, deals with gender stereotypes through language, underlining the extremely bizarre or misogynistic labels that are attached to members of the "fairer sex" on a daily basis.

The public discourse (from the street to parliamentary seats) is contaminated with various qualifications used to tag women. These qualifications are most often a refection of pronounced gender inequality. The piece features some of the characteristic qualifications, written in a combination of Cyrillic and Latin script. The welcome for women, in addition to slur and shabby derogatory expressions, also contains newly composed linguistic forms that classify women into certain categories based on motherhood. The welcome for men is simple, since they are almost perfect. The audience is invited to write down additional tags for the "stronger sex"...

This piece sheds light on the atrophy of the society, which does not detect deviant phenomena, nor does it challenge them, but rather tolerates and empowers them.
