To live like a woman is “Living the ever present possibility that one will be gazed upon  as a mere body, as form and flesh that presents itself as the potential object of another  subject’s intentions and manipulations” (Iris Marion Young). The bodies of individuals  who identify as women become a social and societal issue. Though the female body is  mistreated, subjected to aesthetic, sexual or reproductive standards and is freely  exploited or regulated, it is also the source of its emancipation. 

The breasts are here to create a “safe space" and to re-appropriate the physical space  by the “feminine,” whatever that may be. This landscape is diverse and colorful. It is  marked with layers of women through the ages, like a topography of a struggling,  moving and ever-changing terrain.
