My work is on how I asserted myself as a woman in my relationship with males, questioning religion’s role in instilling in women the consciousness of being subordinate.

The golden thread, a symbol of power, privilege and wealth, is used for the two imposing patriarchal lines as rebutted by the bold and assertive embroidered red statements, clenched fists and defiant stance of the unclothed woman.



Texts embroidered on the cloth

You are made from man.

I have rights.
I have choices

You are made for man.
I am made for woman too.
