About Thoughts of Josephine:
The roaring 20s was a transitional time for women. The “flapper generation” was full of young women who were tackling the struggle for freedom and equality.
100 years on, the 2020s mark a new wave of feminist mobilisation. We are aware of how far we have come - but also aware of how far we have to go.
But what is the modern woman?
Thoughts of Josephine is a symbol of female strength - both physical and mental. It intertwines femininity throughout the last century and encapsulates what it truly means to be female.
The two sides of a coin. The two sides of a face. One we show, one we keep hidden.
Dark, cold colours with a splash of colour. We look from afar, yet know we will never see.
A strong chin. One that has suffered blows yet continues to stand.
The smoke of stress being blown away, yet the fire kept near.
Can we find equality?
