Illustration by Ema Reis, inspired by honey bees and feminism. This piece symbolizes womens fight for equality within society.

Honey bees have been living harmoniously for millions of years and they have created a system that works perfectly for them. This is very similar to what feminists are trying to achieve within society.

The vagina is one of the main anatomical differences in the male and female bodies and in this illustration the bees nest replaces the vagina as a symbol of the harmony they are trying to fight for.

These small black blobs are the women climbing up the leg hair, which is another symbol for beauty standards within society, to reach their ultimate goal, equality.
