This show is about when Kristin Chang said “Godhood is just like girlhood: a begging to be believed,” or when Laurie Penny said “It’s no surprise that so many women and girls have control issues around their bodies,” or when Fiona Apple said “There’s no hope for women,” or when Elana Dykewomon said “Almost every woman I have ever met has a secret belief that she is just on the edge of madness,” or when Carolyn Gage said “You can terrorize her with her own body and then she will torture herself” or when Angela Carter said “I often felt like a female impersonator” or when Leslie Feinberg said “I don’t feel like a man trapped in a woman’s body, I just feel trapped”.
