Projects
  • A Contract with Alone
    A Contract with AloneAs part of my portfolio, Lady Like, which developed narratives based on the idea of cowgirl femininity as an alternative femininity, the narrative A Contract with Alone was developed. This narrative is inspired by solitude as a state of mind after a journey of loneliness and a desire for validation.
  • Disconnted
    DisconntedAs part of my portfolio, LadyLike which looks at the concept of cowgirl femininity as an alternative femininity challenging hegemonic gender norms and patriarchal dominance, the theme Disconnected is developed. The narrative refers to the idea of women being alienated from society due to speaking their truth in regards to experiences of sexual assault and harassment. With no trust in their word, society and human connection seems so far beyond disconnected.
  • Boys Club
    Boys ClubAs part of my publication, Hoedown, which explores the theme of gender inequality in what is through country music lyrics, this narrative Boys Club highlights the concept of gender discrimination. Inspired by "Good ol' Boys Club" by Kacey Musgraves (2015) the song, Boys Club looks at gender discrimination in the workplace by showcasing the hopeful future of corporate culture and highlighting that success and women work together.
