In keeping with my previous post and the thought provoking speech from Emma Watson, this week for Website Wednesday I would like to nominate HeForShe. HeForShe is a newly launched UN campaign, promising a commitment for gender equality. This human rights issue I believe is to be one of the most important issues of now and is a strong step forward to taking action against all forms of violence and discrimination faced by women and girls.

I was completely blown away by this empowering speech that Emma Watson delivered at the UN. Just recently appointed as Goodwill Ambassador for UN Women, Emma Watson launched the new campaign HeForShe, a movement dedicated to ending gender inequality.
I hope you take the 12 minutes out of your day to watch this, to think about the words and the meaning behind this campaign and begin to make change in your everyday life. Not only is this speech empowering, but it's reassuring that these matters are now having a voice, and Emma delivers this with such strength and poise.

This week for Sketchbook Sunday I would like to nominate American artist Pat Steir. She has been an influential artist for decades now, developing recognition in the 80's by her technique that involved applying paint exclusively by dripping and flinging it onto the canvas. Pat Steir has always searched to understand the relationship between artwork and its audience, pushing her audience to find their own meaning of her artwork.

Recently i-D online wrote an article covering the Q&A that the lucky design students of Central Saint Martins got to take part in with the legendary Vogue US Editor in Chief Anna Wintour and fashion critic Suzy Menkes. One thing that sparked conversation was Wintour's comment that fashion shows are unnecessary and that times are changing. She advised any young designer to think of an interesting and creative way to present their collections in contrast to the exclusive catwalk shows that are today.

"The more visible they make me, The more invisible I become" was the first time that Nick Knight worked with Kate Moss. Shot in 1995, the film explores privacy and obsession. At a time when surveillance culture was just beginning, Nick Knight takes influence from the controversy this caused and captures footage of the young Kate through security cameras. Although this was shot almost 20 years ago, the debate still existing more so then ever, Nick captures Kate in such a timeless way.
