Sawyer Rose Makes Art That Counts The Hours Of Women’s Labor

SawyerRose-studiopic.jpg

There’s a saying that “a woman’s work is never done.” Studies show that women put 11 more hours weekly into unpaid labor than men. Artist Sawyer Rose depicts this inequality through large sculptures in her exhibit Counting the Hours.

"We will have happier families and communities if we recognize all the different ways people are working and women are working."

Her exhibit Counting the Hours ends this weekend. See it at Code & Canvas in San Francisco.
