VALERIE BREAUX HAAF

The Body Shields series was created by my need to express how society's different stereotypes brand and stigmatize women of all ages and how we use them in our need to survive.

 

Growing up during the Woman's Liberation Movement, I was taught by my mother to be a strong and independent woman. We all have our own ways of protecting our vulnerabilities and our own body shields.
