a mens club for rebecca

the tiny revolutions team took on the challenge of getting into the exclusive weld club, which only accepts men as members, to post a notice announcing drink prices would be increasing by 23.1% in line with the disparity of incomes between men and women.   

the submission:

“there is still so much to be done but I believe change can be achieved through action and action alone at this moment in history.

rebecca, 7.10.19.

the thinking:

what is the idea we are moving forward with?

infiltrate men’s only club
their mission is to secure a sign on the toilet cubicle stating:
‘the price of an alcoholic beverage in this establishment has been raised by 23.1% to offset the current gender wage disparity in wa. thank you for your patronage. management’

how can we do it?
