26 adjectives that describe inspiring women

In January 2017, I asked the public what adjectives describe inspiring women, selecting one word for every letter of the alphabet (A-Z) to create a set of 26 spray-painted prints. The subject of the image smiles at the viewer and doubles as a resilient, narrative-changing response to sexism and islamophobia. Many of the prints were donated to feminist causes throughout Montreal; some were auctioned off at events or given away for free at the Manif des femmes à Montréal. The McCord Stewart Museum in Montreal acquired the remaining prints in May 2018.
