How Much of a Woman

Feminism, art and film - these are a few of my favorite things. So, to get them all together in one package is such a thrill for me. The artist is Liron Kroll and this short was the final project for her first degree in communication arts.

The video is about all the ways women are quantified and measured up: shoe size, height, waist measurements, bra size, age, a woman’s “number,” etc. It's not a new idea, but it's a unique way of expressing it; the rapid progression of still photographs is visually striking.

Added bonus, it’s set to Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m On Fire!”

Warning: the video does show a breast and menstrual blood. Probably not safe for work, unless you work at the WRC!
