See below for her statement on the series MINE:

One of the first concepts we grasp in life – mine
Yet somehow what is mine
As a girl
And now as a woman
had and 
has been
judged
molded 
lusted after
shaved 
plucked
pushed
shamed
mine - stolen 
conglomerated
a society obsessed
let them be shamed forever into silence
a door swings open
light crawls across the floor
she walks through
resilient
unscathed of the injustices that weighted on her foremothers
