Orthodox religious dogma, feminism and female sexual liberation are themes that I explore through this series Through my research I am at­tempting to understand the true nature and function of a female in the 21st century, is she the aggressive feminist or the submissive vessel of procreation?

Man and his orthodox views have taken over society leaving the aver­age female caged in this dichotomy of modern – traditional beliefs. Pa­triarchal oppression and societal pressure have conditioned the female such that even upon trying, at times it is difficult to break free of these molds.

With the role of the female in flux are we being allowed to exist in harmony with ourselves? Will we break the mould of our own conditioning?
