My sister was told by a doctor that she could not have a hysterectomy unless she had permission from her boyfriend. 

 

Drawing on the impact of anti-abortion legislation in the United-States, and the use of period tracking applications to track estrogen producing bodies across North America, flo playfully disrupts and turns the hetero-patriarchal, colonial, misogynist and queerphobic white surveillant gaze onto itself. Inspired by contemporary media and solidarity movements online, flo highlights the ways that bodies who can become pregnant continue to be victims of systemic violence and patriarchy.
