Sexual Harassment in the Workplace, 2018; Silver, glass, wool, plastic, nylon, fur, leather, feathers, steel. 25”L x 18”W x 7.5D”

Like most women my age I have more than one memory of sexual harassment. While I was pondering how to depict men's hands for this work, I was reminded of a song by Frank Zappa titled, Sexual Harassment in the Workplace. It has no lyrics, so I decided to borrow it for my idea. Men's work gloves were chosen to represent the male aspects of my design. An old and very crude reference to a woman’s vagina as her coin purseinspired me to use coin purses to depict the female aspects. The purses are surrounded by grabbing gloves; some of them are strong, older women with wide open eyes to symbolize harassment experience. The smaller  purses filled with fur symbolize younger more vulnerable women.
