Artist's Description

To be born a woman has been to be born, within an allotted and confined 
space, into the keeping of men. The social presence of woman has developed 
as a result of their ingenuity in living under such tutelage within such a 
limited space. But this has been at the cost of a woman’s self being split 
in two. A woman must continually watch herself. She is almost continually 
accompanied by her own image of herself. Whilst she is walking across a room 
or whilst she is weeping at the death of her father, she can scarcely 
envisaging herself walking or weeping. From earliest childhood she has been 
taught and persuaded to survey herself continually (Berger 1972:46).
