Michaela Barker – Intersectionality

Artist: Michaela Barker 

Title: Intersectionality

Grade: 12th Grade

School: Campolindo High School

Teacher: Heidi Cabra

This artwork is the second cover illustration I completed for my school’s newspaper, the Campo Claw, as an inaugural staff illustrator. This illustration emphasizes the importance of intersectional feminism and raising awareness about sexual assault, with portraits of women of color and the teal ribbon to honor assault survivors. I completed this artwork for our issue on Women’s History and Sexual Assault Awareness Month , including my school’s mascot, the cougar, as a safeguard of the women featured.
