A poignant poster designed by Olamide from my class on “women and writing in East Asia:” the peony flower represents the romantic play The Peony Pavilion we read this semester. The borders of the peony petals as ropes symbolize social constraints upon women. The yin yang diagram in blue and pink as the pistel and the stamen of the flower symbolize the two sexes. The two celebrity icons– a sexy girl and a good girl– represent public images of successful women.
