Comics-inspired mural in Belgium has suggestions of wokeness

The Brussels Times wrote about an illustrated mural done as part of a comics-inspired project that's supposed to emphasize women in society, but which seems to have a character presented for the sake of checking a diversity box:
On Friday afternoon, the City of Brussels inaugurated a new 160 square metre fresco, the 67th in its comic book series, on the side of number 4 of the Rue Champ de l’Église in Laeken, RTBF reports.

Entitled “La Cabane”, the latest mural in the Comic Book Trail of Brussels depicts seven women of different physiques and origins in an environment of trees and water. It highlights the importance of working together.

The artist Léonie Bischoff explains that she chose this drawing after meeting with residents of Laeken. “Among the themes that came up, those of green spaces and the presence of women in the public space immediately spoke to me, as they have been part of my concerns for a long time.”

Léonie Bischoff is a comic strip artist (“Anaïs Nin” and “La Princesse des glaces”) born in Switzerland and living in Brussels. She is a member of the Collective of Comic Strip Creators Against Sexism.
Well if she's really against sexism, why does the mural feature a woman wearing a burka and modest clothes in the lower end of the picture, on the lawn by the treehouse? Considering how many Muslim women have been forced to wear burkas and niqabs, and have paid a horrible price for not doing so, surely it's not a contradiction to make it look as though that sort of dress is acceptable? How can one truly work "together" with that kind of ideology?

Unfortunately, that's PC-laden Europe for you, where they pretend this is totally normal, and can produce art with PC elements tacked onto it.

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
