Artwork Description

Oil Paint on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed on the back.

As girls we are taught to smile and stay safe,
be courteous and kind, and don’t stay out late.
As women we learn that money rules the world,
our beauty is an asset and our bodies can be sold.
Our sexuality is power which can be taken away.
Beware of predators, glass ceilings and poisonous fruit.
Smile, stand tall, be proud, you are special.
But avoid speaking or eating; you must remain slight.
Stay calm, don’t complain, your emotions are petty,
Just get on with the job of being pretty.
