Women's Strike

A poster created for "Women's Strike" depicting two symbols of Polish pro-choice movement - a black umbrella and the red lightning bolt.

The poster was designed when Polish parliament started discussing the controversial proposal to tighten abortion laws (which are already one of the strictest in Europe) and the conservative government wanted to use the COVID-19 distraction to push through the legislation. As it was not so easy to protest during lockdown, many people manifested their pro-choice views by putting up an umbrella, or a lightning bolt poster in their window or balcony.

The illustration was drawn and coloured in PS with Wacom CintiQ.
