My favorite performance I’ve ever done. A reflection on my life spent being taught to hate my body for being too big and imperfect, and having to change those feelings over the past five months of being pregnant and my body serving a different purpose.

The campaign was in response to a recent fatal rape case involving a 20-year-old woman at a state-owned company who was asked by her boss to a dinner. She was sexually assaulted by her boss’s friend and died as a result of her injuries.“Don’t ask your staff to provide part-time escort services.
