Spelman Scholars were urged by their ProfessorDr. Margaret Price from the beginning to conceptualize an advertisement that would"provide an alternative to the stereotypical images of womanhood so often displayed inmainstream advertising." It is with this notion in mind that they would produce a posterexploring the issue of womanhood in the Spelman Community.Stacy Marks, an English major, chose to project the need to understand and embracewomanhood through affirming a sense of self. She hopes to create a platform for socialdiscourse through urging others to apply two main principles: "Step into your success"and "Pursue your passion." The viewer should leave empowered to seek and find theirsource of passion, not their grandmothers, mothers or any other influential women intheir life.This poster will prompt students to think twice about what they want out of life andclaiming the power to define oneself. That is the very essence of womanhood: walking inconfidence of who you are and what you want. Whos to know? Maybe one will find theirpassion is similar to that of their grandmother and mother. One thing is sure, it willcompel everyone to question where their personal idea of womanhood comes from andwhether the notion transcend generations.The presentation will take place on April 24, 2008. This aesthetic piece is projected to bea hit in advocating a more assured way of wrestling with the idea of "womanhood" foroneself.For a review copy, please contact Stacy Marks at
