One year after the birth of the #MeToo movement, The Economist magazine traces how the corporate landscape might have shifted since. The reflection is timely, coinciding with the high-profile Kavanaugh sexual assault case, and proves that there’s still a long way to go before more voices get heard.

For its ‘Sex and power’ issue covering the week of 29 September, the publication commissioned Israel-born illustrator Noma Bar, who’s renowned for his experimentations with negative space, to interpret the theme.

At first glance, Bar’s graphic seems to depict a hand over the rear of a woman. She’s headless, but her raised arms suggest she’s in shock.

Zoom out, and you’ll find that the image is all part of a man’s suit. The woman’s silhouette becomes a tie, and her arms form his collar. Check out the visual below, which was recently uncovered and reshared by The Logo Smith.
