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?
