This painting was done in 1996 by Lilith Adler. At first sight you can see a man and a women, two crosses, and a sentence that says “We tell you what to think.” This painting transmits an idea that men told women what they should do or how they should think. The man looks like he is telling the women what she should be thinking and the women looks sort of frightened because she had to obey him. The two crosses on the sides give me a feeling that this had to do something with the religion. The colors on the background are black, brown, and a little bit of orange. Since the background are dark colors our attention goes directly to the faces of the man and the women. In my opinion, this painting represents the women's rights movement because women wanted to have a voice and to be able to make their own decisions. So, this painting represents what men where doing to them, and the opposite of what women wanted.
