So this was a sweater I found at Forever 21. As you can see it is a red sweater with a black A, so not exactly like Hester’s, but obviously connected. What was interesting about this sweater, was that it was the only sweater with a letter on it. If there were sweaters with other letters next to it, I would have just walked by it, however Forever 21 chose to only sell an A. Argue what you want about the demand of an “A” sweater, but I would like to point out the obvious connection to The Scarlett Letter. What do you think about exploiting a symbol that alludes to adultery? Do you think it shows that women are in power, or that we need to be ashamed and punished?
