This project emerged following an examination of various educational books for children in which children are encouraged to read and copy sentences in order to increase there vocabulary and improve their verbal comprehension, writing and spelling. Unfortunately, even a superficial analsis of the sentences suggested in these books shows us that those which make direct reference to a gendered subject -using proper names or nouns such as “man” or “woman”- allude overwhelmingly to male individuals. It should also be noted that many of these sentences seem to reflect simplistic gender stereotypes that we should fight to eradicate. Audience participation is requested, so that instead of copying these sentences,new ones are proposed which demolish these sexual standards.

                     Installation selected for the VIII Call for Mulier Mulieris Visual Arts 2014 (Alicante).
