The Clothes Are Not to Blame

By Amy, aged 13 from Elgin

Tell us about the artwork.

It is four girls with different body types wearing revealing clothes with writing saying THIS IS NOT AN INVITATION. It is to show that your body type and what you're wearing doesn't give anyone an excuse to touch you or make you uncomfortable.

What inspired you to make your artwork?

Personal experience.

What action would you like people to take to make the world better for girls and non-binary young people today?

Educate boys to show that they are not better than us, they do not have the right to make us uncomfortable, and what we wear isn't an excuse to touch us.

This artwork is part of WOWsers: A Creative Explosion, an exhibition supported by BBC Children In Need's impact programme focused on children’s mental health, A Million & Me.
