Women’s Work was created by Olivia Johnson as a reaction to the discrimination that women, notably women of color, continue to face in both the workforce and at home. The medium of cross stitch, a form of art that tends to be labeled as kitsch and a women’s hobby craft, was intentionally utilized to emphasize the fact that women’s labor is routinely dismissed and undervalued.
