Sit Like a Lady is a visual metaphor for the practice of ‘wo+manspreading.’ This series portrays female figures in confident and powerful body positions, often associated with men. By portraying women in these ‘wide’ positions with dominant body language, I challenge the customary gender stereotypes of ‘a powerful position’ for a man being ‘a sexual signal position’ for a woman.
