Right ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #273

8th of March, Barcelona, Spain, Feminist Demonstration Poster

You don’t quite
Get it right

But it’s OK
To get it mostly right
Or at least somewhat right

Just so long
As you’re
In the right

Pic and a Word Challenge

Feminism is the radical notion that women are people


On the 8th of March (8 de Marc), 2019, Spanish women demonstrated en masse, nation-wide, for women’s rights. Ample evidence of these demonstrations remained months later in posters and signs painted all over the city and here, at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. The sign here is in catalan, the language of Catalonia. And the attribution to Angela Davis is not quite right, though it certainly sounds like something she might have said. I’ve attributed the english original to its rightful originator.

Last week we were Freed, this week, let’s get it Right or seek something else to inspire you in this photograph of a sign advertising a major women’s rights demonstration in Spain at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona in Bellaterra, Spain

The Pic and a Word Challenge is (usually) a weekly creativity prompt offered Mondays.

Each week I provide a photograph of mine along with a single word. The challenge? Use the pic and/or word as points of inspiration to create something — a photograph, a painting, prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction, longread or just a few words. You are welcome to use these two elements (photograph and word) literally, thematically or metaphorically. If you create both images and words, all the better.

To participate:

  • Use any title you like
  • Your response can be words and/or images
  • You may use my image in your post, or any image you have created
  • Mention that you are responding to the Pic and a Word Challenge
  • Add a link to this post in your response

To help us find your response — whether on WordPress, Instagram, Flicker, Tumblr, etc. — you can also:

  • Add a comment on this post to announce your response
  • Apply the tag/hashtag “Pic and a Word Challenge” or “#picandawordchallenge” to your post

Each week, I’ll list the previous week’s responses at the end of the new challenge. I may also share some on my social media: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, etc.

The previous challenge was: Freed

Challenge #272 ~ Freed


The word for last week’s challenge was Freed, along with this photograph a lone Edison bulb casting a delightfully subtle light in the dungeons of a former mental hospital, taken while filming The Magicians in Coquitlam, British Columbia, Canada.

Three bloggers Freed themselves up to post this week. 😉 Thanks Everyone!
