    “I am a woman and I have lived in the Middle East for quite a while. I have witnessed gender inequality there, as well as in the U.S. This poster depicts two hands, one male and one female, that together create a bird with equal wings, letting it fly freely.”

    Articles 1-30. This piece addresses all of the articles in the Declaration.

    “I felt it was important to define each article in a way that anyone could understand and relate to, especially children. Educating children on basic rights is a way to work toward building a foundation of respect for others even when there are major differences in cultures.”
