My brooch shows the way women have to deal with their looks. The skin, hair, mouth – all body parts that they hide or call attention to.
Women expose themselves to violence, murder, imprisonment and disfigurement of body and face by not following men’s rules of cover-up in certain parts of the world.
Figures from the World Health Organization show that 35 percent of the world’s women have experienced violence and/or sexual abuse. Only 55 percent of all women have the power to decide over their own health.
The brooch is made of goat leather, silicone molds for lips, and pearls.
