Jezebel: Exploring the Gender Constructs Placed on Women

Jezebel is a photo series that explores women within the lens of society. It is a study of gender constructs and the countless responsibilities that women are born into and ultimately grow into. It aims to shed light on the unfair expectations assigned to women based on gender, while celebrating the innate or acquired traits that women have. This series in is honor of women and the countless ways that they uplift and improve society as a whole.

“Jezebel is inspired by the women in my life who empower and inspire me daily. I come from generations of powerful matriarchs who have paved ways and opened doors that enabled me to have the opportunities that I have today. This project is an ode to the women that love, support and motivate me.” – Anna Divinagracia, director and photographer.
