WITCH. BITCH. GODDESS

 

I’m reminded in the cruelest of ways of how I don’t look and how I should look. From Instagram to Facebook to Netflix, I’m constantly bombarded with stiff and unattainable examples of womanhood. I never asked for this, but I’m continuously indoctrinated into this endless system of degradation and assimilation. As much as I fortify myself against these unnecessary examples and carve out space to love myself wholly, sometimes I’m still hit.

 

This piece is for women by women. It is a collection of stories and a fortification of strength. Through interview, movement and text I explore women’s relationships to their bodies and sexual assault. I believe that by putting the unfiltered multifaceted beauty of women display, we can use vulnerability to empower the daily experiences of women. For this I process I interviewed a wide range of women about their experiences and thoughts on a variety of topics. The interviews were used to create a safe space for women to share their experiences and release the weight of these experiences into the world. 

What does it mean to be a woman?

 Are you proud of being a woman?

How do you feel your womanhood limits you?

 Did you always like yourself?

Can you name a time that you wanted to hide your womanhood?

Do you think it’s safe to be a woman?
