Gender inequality awareness idea

I bought this barbie in a charity shop for 20p and thought i should use it for a craftivism project.

 

i put ink on her head, knee and elbow to make her look beaten up. i also put gaffer tape on her eyes and mouth to make her look powerless. i put Gaffer tape around her body because i wanted to cover her personal parts up. i am going to Gapper tape her around a fence like the tape around her body and glue the mini placard to her hand.

 

I know i want to show people that gender inequality is a huge issue in the Global South but i still cant thing of something sharp and snappy to get people thinging and that fits on the placard.

 

any ideas?
