“Being a survivor of domestic violence and single mother
with small children in the noughties in an often hostile environment got me
questioning where exactly women fit in society.
“The series Outside-In
explores womens' 'roles' as well as celebrating women’s resilience in the
harshest of circumstances.”
Women or Men is one of the
images from Alix Edward's series Outside-In which questions the
role of women in 21st century society in the UK where 100 years after gaining
the vote feminism still needs to exist with women being paid significantly less
than men, police forces in 2018 finding it necessary to introduce the classification
of the 'everyday' harassment of women as a special kind of hate
crime and a quarter of women still being subject to domestic violence at some
stage during their lives.
