‘Hysterectic’ launched online for IWD

Happy International Women’s Day 2020! We know this has been long awaited and what a better day to launch ‘Hysterectic’ online than International Women’s Day and the 10th anniversary of the opening exhibition at the Golden Thread Gallery, Belfast.

Since the exhibition and limited print run of ‘Hysterectic’ Sonya’s work has encouraged women going through surgery or treatment to think creatively in using the arts to take back some form of personal control and to feel empowered through expressing and speaking up about their own experiences.

This limited edition publication includes an essay by acclaimed writer Cherry Smyth and was designed by Thought Collective, Belfast. It was winner of the UK McNaughton Review Award 2010.

‘ The answer to the question of who owns our bodies lies in establishing the legal, moral and social principles of bodily integrity, so that each person controls the universe within our own skins. Therefore the point is not to give each other answers but to share questions and experiences ‘ – Gloria Steinem, Revolution From Within.
