Stories Women in the Chair Young reporters from Headliners Foyle studied a number of contributions to the feminist movement, some Irish, some historical, some modern day as part of a arts project for International Women's Day. The artwork 'The Kitchen Chair' has seen the achievements of notable and not so notable feminists summarised in Haiku form. These were then engraved on a set of kitchen chairs in order to create the art exhibit. Hannah Breslin, who focussed on Audre Lourde, said: "Lourde was an American writer and poet who self identified as a black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet. She dedicated her life and creative works to tackling issues such as homophobia, racism, sexism and other social injustices. "Lourde was always trying to empower her readers to try change the prejudice in their lives. As she was disquieted with with how modern society had a continuous disposition to categorizes people into categories, such as “lesbian”, “black” or “woman.” Lourde fought against the marginalisation against these groups to empower those who were lost and hidden within society due to unjustified prejudice." Audre Lourde once said: “Your silence will not save you” and I think this harsh yet undoubtedly true statement shows her willingness to stand up for people when no one else would and empowering those who are being brought down to stand up." Hannah said: "I feel this statement runs true and embodies the theme of this International Women’s Day, Be bold for change." Another Headliners young reporter, Caleb Griffin, studied the works of Tatyana Fezlalizadeh. The American Activist and freelance illustrator gained public notoriety when she used her unique artistic ability to lead a street art campaign 'Stop Telling Women to Smile'. Tatyana based her campaign on several interviews with women on gender based public harassment. From these interviews she was prompted to fight back against the inequality and prejudice. The campaign 'Stop Telling Women to Smile' began with a variety of posters being put up around Brooklyn, New York. "I liked how this artists work is really a grassroots up project," explained Caleb. "A crowd funding effort allowed the campaign to blossom across the United States promoting woman’s rights in a new way, addressing the public and supposed perpetrators directly. By creating a bold presence for women in an environment in where they are so often made to feel uncomfortable and unsafe. Her posters contained aggressive, soon to be famous captions that would be repeated from years to come, for example, “Women are not outside for entertainment” and “My outfit is not an invite In the years since the beginning of her campaign, Tatyana has gone on to use social media to continue to advocate the importance of woman’s rights, using modern day tools to communicate age old issues. Caleb said: " Tatyana stood up when no one else did and now has become a known and trusted figure on the gender inequality issue. Her bold and justice seeking attitude has represented millions of disadvantaged woman worldwide and that is why this International Woman’s Day I think Tatyana should be honoured."
