Ever since Eve took a bite from the apple, women have been dammed. Because of this decision, women were labeled as temptations, meaning that men do not have to justify their actions. Eve tempted Adam to eat the apple, so women are evil. Although this is wildly untrue, this rhetoric still holds up today. Women are not seen as people but as things to conquest and own. Things to devour. With my piece “Sushi Girl”, I strive to strike a conversation about how women are viewed in today’s society. Women are seen for their bodies, the things that tempt men, and nothing else. “Sushi Girl” embarks on a long journey to help bring this discussion to light and showcase that women are not something to be owned, not created just to tempt men, and not something to devour for your pleasure.
