Gender Roles, 2017, stoneware
Gender roles try to dictate how we live and love, what we say and do. When it comes to mental health, men are much less likely to come forward with their struggles, as self expression is viewed as weak and non-masculine. Our male veterans navigate a particularly challenging world of expectations. The truth is that speaking to one another gifts freedom, forges bonds, and expression finds strength in numbers. We need to redefine strength, deconstruct roles, go off script. Break character.
