    This responds to the public needs because we live in a society where freedom, liberty, and human rights are at the hands of this generation more than any before us. It targets a patriotic feeling for our own rights.

    The phrasing of this mural shows that the virus has more rights than women. Since the virus has a negative connotation but still has more freedom than women, it suggests that something is amiss. The overall message is that it should be the other way around: women should have more freedom than the virus.

    This image depicts a scary truth in our society. It attempts to speak out about the injustices that women face. I rated this image of propaganda as beneficial because women should logically have more freedom than the virus and it sheds light on inequality. My rating of beneficial matched the majority of the ratings. The important thing here is to raise awareness and make people questions things. This example demonstrates to me that the nature of contemporary propaganda provokes strong emotion
