An art student has been praised for her response to her teacher's suggestion that she should "dial down the feminism" in her work.
London-based Alex Ruth Bertulis-Fernandes created an image of a dial with two settings; one saying "complicit in my own dehumanisation" and the other - to which it is turned - "raging feminist" along with the heading "Dial down the feminism".
She posted her response art on social media along with the caption: "Last week one of my art teachers suggested I 'dial down the feminism.' Today I showed him my newest piece."
The 23-year-old student has received thousands of responses of support since she posted an image of her creation on Twitter - so far garnering over 88,000 retweets since February 7.
Since receiving so many messages of support Alex posted a tweet expressing her gratitude:
"Thanks for all the love shown to this piece, it really means the world. I'm a bit overwhelmed so it may take me some time to respond to everyone!"
The artist added that she is now considering selling prints and t-shirts of her art piece.
