The piece shows female empowerment through the reappropriation of the body and the meanings it holds in different dimensions. It reveals the diversity of bodies and beauties, rejecting the stereotype of “perfect body”, it exposes the recognition of the menstrual cycle as a vital process, not shameful or repulsive. Finally, it addresses self-pleasure and body exploration through touch, which allow women to know their reactions to different sensory provocations and build their own definition of pleasure and eroticism.
