This mixed media piece was inspired by medieval altar pieces and art. At the center of the piece, is a verse the client wanted “Job 12:13-17”. . . #art #africanart #africanartist #painting #mixedmedia #mixedmediaart #medieval #medievalart #contemporaryart #contemporaryafricanart #delaanyah #commission (at Pokuasi) https://www.instagram.com/p/CPBwJCgJw1I/?utm_medium=tumblr

“Whatever their form, female alliances were generally underpinned by a powerful sense of legitimacy. Many sought to reassert more traditional moral boundaries, policing the neighborhood by curbing the behavior of individuals they saw as flouting the norms pf social behavior. The most common targets were violent or sexually predatory men, disruptive intruders, promiscuous and quarrelsome women, disorderly families, and occasionally fraudulent tradesmen or cruel employers. In most cases, they sought to mobilize local public opinion and harness informal pressure to shame and frighten the offender.
Such informal pressure, however, was not always the appropriate tactic. If the grievance related to a specific incident, especially one involving an outsider, it demanded a more immediate response. And sometimes, as for the women at the Holborn conduit, that could mean violent retribution. Though women did not generally carry knives, stones were formidable weapons and readily available. Collective female violence played a more significant role than is often assumed. It occurred most frequently in the defense of persons or properties threatened by bailiffs, tax collectors, and other troublesome intruders.
...Women’s political agency rested primarily, however, on neighborhood policing through the use of informal pressure. The pressure had to be collective, for a woman alone possessed little leverage. It took courage, moreover, to accuse a male neighbor of sexual harassment. He would probably simply ignore her or call her a whore, an easy and effective weapon in male hands, and her accusation might well backfire. ...A woman shackled to an abusive husband had even fewer means of protection or redress. But in both situations, the support and intervention of female friends significantly altered the equation. They could provide an injured wife with comfort and shelter, and by circulating hostile reports they could mold local opinion and perhaps generate a campaign of jeers and recrimination to shame the offender into better behavior.
...Such informal pressure had its origins in a collective opinion crystallizing among local women about a particular individual or family, a ‘female common voice’. This process was facilitated by the fact that women routinely came together at the market, bake-house, well, laundry place, and church. Those working at home would often sit at the door with their spindle, where they could keep an eye on their small children playing in the street, and chat to neighbors doing likewise passing by.”
- Bernard Capp, “Distaff Power: Plebeian Female Alliances in Early Modern England.” in The Politics of Female Alliance in Early Modern England
