In a world of extremes, from the burka to the thong, women’s bodies are battlegrounds of control and manipulation. Ancient practices like foot binding in China find modern counterparts in surgeries for beauty and sexual enhancement. Across cultures, from African tribes to Western societies, women endure extreme measures to conform to societal ideals.

Female genital mutilation (FGM) stands as one of the most brutal examples, with severe health consequences. Shockingly, similar surgeries are now pursued in the West under different guises, risking infection and loss of sensation.

From foot binding to lip injections, the thread remains the same: the relentless manipulation of women’s bodies. It’s time to confront this pervasive oppression and work towards genuine autonomy and respect for women everywhere.
