What I Do

Perversion of Justice

Perversion of Justice is the true story of how two, ordinary, working-class women exposed workplace sexual assault and harassment by federal judge Samuel B. Kent, but not before they destroyed each other first. Perversion of Justice is not only about the abuses of power created by self-policing systems and lifetime judicial appointments, but it is also about a rarely talked about aspect of sexual oppression in the workplace– why women turn on each other in the face of sexual harassment/assault allegations.

War Paint: A Reclamation of Body and Narrative

October 2017 saw a reckoning. Even at the height of the Bill Cosby scandal, with more than 50 accusers telling a chillingly similar story of serial rape, his accusers were still viewed with enormous skepticism and doubt by many. However, the outing of Harvey Weinstein was a tipping point. Women’s stories about workplace harassment and assault are finally being given the benefit of the doubt. War Paint is collection of short biographies of sexual harassment accompanied by powerful photographs of #MeToo survivors. The use of brilliantly vibrant body paint is used to symbolically reclaim the body and the memoir-like stories allow for voices to be heard and documented.

War Paint will be accepting applications for participation in this project shortly. Please check back here, email me at asherry@alissasherry.com to get on our mailing list, or follow me on Twitter, Facebook, or Linked In for more information.
