Week 7- Conflict
This is an editorial cartoon by artist Gary Markstein. Directly below the image is a link to one of his websites that has a collection of several of his cartoons including a lot of his recent work. I looked at some of his other stuff and he has some other really funny ones that relate to this one, depicting Rush Limbaugh. This kind of perfectly depicts the one of the many contemporary conflicts occurring in women's rights. The conflict of natural right versus religion, should the law of man control the rights of an individual. His is consitutional if religion is forcing its prohibition? I liked this cartoon because it elegantly uses iconic symbols and manipulates them to effectively get the point across.

  1. Wow! Very shocking message and blatant disrespect for women. This image is effective in representing artist's view, Religion is more important than Women's Rights (to men, might I add.)
