This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

I dont usually upload anything - I'm just really not that good at creating, I'm more of a builder. But I was SOOO inspired by RoseIsRed supercool college posters that when there was a dorm building competition on www.sims2community.com, I wanted to build a feminist dorm for my simmies majoring in Feminist Activism, the major that White Rider made for me. Check it out, it completely Rocks!

So during the dorm building contest, I posted my entry & it's screenshots and some folks asked me to upload the posters from my "Mary Wollstonecraft Memorial Hall". So here they are!
I will upload more later if you all like them. I have a pretty great collection.

What's included here:
  • A Dorm Name Plate for a Feminist Dorm "Mary Wollstonecraft Memorial Hall" with a quote from her work, "Vindication of the Rights of Woman" (one of the first known feminist theory books - 18th century) It looks a LOT better in the game, but even with all the lighting on high and the shadows off, I couldnt get it brighter in the picture, so I am attaching a picture from fireworks.
  • Sark's "How to be a fabulous Feminist"
  • My own take on "I'm not a feminist, but..."
  • The Guerilla Girls ad campaign "Don't Stereotype Me"
  • A poster from the 1.15 million March for Women's Lives of 2004 (I was an organizer)
  • Women's Revolution Poster (and also the tatoo of half my friends)
  • The last 5 years winning posters of the National Organization for Women Foundation's nationwide project, "Love Your Body Day"

Wow, cool! ^-^ My sims shall enjoy this.

But there's a typo on the Mary Wollstonecraft sign, if you didn't notice. You put "1759 - 1757". What are the real dates?

Wow. I just recovered this username after nearly four years of this account being inaccessible... Oh happy day!

Erm... well, nice recoloring skills. Is it weird to be a woman and not a feminist? =P

Great download, my teen sims will love this!
Feminists have gotten a bad name so its not weird that you are female and not a feminist
Yet you would be if you could no longer vote! That is, afterall, the first feminist movement.
So if you vote you are a feminist!

These are great, thank you so much! Is the dorm available for download? I poked around over at S2C, but didn't see it for download. It really is a great building and the first pretty dorm I've seen. Any chance of a poster of The Rights of Woman and The Female Citizen?

Ps: M.W.S.' birth & death should be 1759-1797.

Audcand & psychokatie

Crap crap crap!!! Sorry about the typo!!I will change it today and repost it tomorrow!!

About downloading the dorm...
there is a dorm template for the contest that is downloadable, and everyone in the contest is redoing it. So the structure is available for download, but my take on it isnt. After the contest, I will make little changes to it and post it if you like it so much!

Thanks for all your comments and feedback!! I am currently working on some more feminist themed recolors for the contest, and will keep posting them!!

If you found any great posters that you would like me to make, PM me with the links to the graphics, and I will try to make them!!

Thanks!

Oh man, thanks so much for making these! It makes me feel so much better when I find other feminists out there. We sure do get a bad rep as being "ball-busters" or what have you. I wish I could have some of these posters in real life...
