Scarlet

Inspired by “The Scarlet Letter” by Nathaniel Hawthorne, a classic novel about a woman who wore the letter “A” on her dress as a punishment of committing adultery. Rather than a symbolism of shame, Scarlet empowers each person.

 

MANIFESTO

Let’s talk about sex.

 

There’s a taboo around sex education in schools and at home.

 

Having “the talk” shouldn’t be an uphill battle, rather an educational and informative conversation that brings a sense of empowerment to each individual.

 

Instead of focusing on abstinence as the only form of sex education, every human being has a right to know what their options are. They deserve to be heard, to be seen.

 

Sex education in public schools needs a revamp.

 

Especially now, because it’s “Learn from home, work from home, play from home.”
