Panel: Concentric circles.
Text in inner most circle: Sexual harassers and abusers.
First concentric circle contains text: Those who condone this behaviour - By defending it.
Second concentric circle contains text: Those who condone this behaviour - By making jokes about it.
Third concentric circle contains text: Those who condone this behaviour - By remaining silent about it.

First panel: A girl says - I want to be a scientist when I grow up. Boy says - That's silly. Girls can't be scientists.
Second panel: A man and a woman tell their children (a boy and a girl) - This month, we can only afford tuition for your brother.
Third panel: Boy says - Man, there are no hot chicks in my engineering college.
Fourth panel: Girl says - My job at the IT company is terrible. HR won't look into my sexual harassment complaint.
Fifth panel: Man says - So yeah ... I don't think women are cut out for STEM.
