The third wonderful artist we are thrilled to introduce you to is Miriam Cocker…
Miriam Cocker somehow turns all her academic essays into feminist discourse and cooks the best sweet potato curry. She illustrated ‘Behind the Image: Essena O’Neill’ and ‘F*M@LE M@STURB*T!0N’ and has also created several images for our print magazine, out on 10th December.
Why did you want to get involved with TWSS?
I doodle all the time and I thought it would be a good idea to doodle with a purpose, and what better purpose than smashing the patriarchy?!
What’s been your favourite project?
Probably the masturbation article I illustrated. Purely because I enjoyed having a desk covered in discarded sketches of masturbating girls. I have stuck it on my wall but I should probably take it down when our landlady comes to visit…
If you could do a portrait of any iconic woman who would it be?
I’m currently obsessed with an amazing 18th century feminist called Lady Mary Wortley Montagu. She travelled all over Europe and wrote angry feminist polemics and got into arguments with Alexander Pope.
