“Political Power Grab” by Sara Mika
This is one in a series of posts featuring an artist whose work is included in the Threads of Resistance exhibition.
Artist’s Statement: I once saw a political cartoon with a preppy white man perched on top of a uterus. He was sarcastically saying, “Government should be small and unobtrusive so women don’t feel it in their uteruses.” Well, since it actually feels anything but, I’ve depicted three greedy political man hands fighting tug-of-war style over a uterus. In the background, I’ve illustrated what I’m coining #rankandfilepussies. Men expect us to fall in line and personify their vision for OUR bodies? Well, we proud pussies have news for them! We truly ARE sewn together with threads of resistance. Rank and file us and they’ll soon find out that we not only have power in numbers, but that we bitches bite.

Sara, This is a beautiful piece of art with so much meaning for the woman and her body. We simply cannot begin to take steps backward, having fought so hard to get to where we are today. Our uteruses are still in the grips of government, at their mercy and we must persist in not allowing the men who want to control us to have the honor of controlling our lady parts.ReplyDelete
