Among the most striking murals in Zaragoza is the Jardín Nocturno (2017) by artist Arantxa Recio which pays tribute and draws attention to the sexist violence ― and the resistance ― endured by women in the Plaza de César Augusto. But such sexist violence exists everywhere, in everyday ordinary life situations. As I admire this mural, I love how it mirrors me within its frame, drawing me to reflect on the manner in which I use language that is either sexist or objectifies women.
