A self-portrait from the year that has been.
It may play out like a domestic violence scene.
But it’s not.
This blood is from a tumour in my uterus.
It causes excessive haemorrhaging at a moments notice.
From my vagina.
Does that make you feel uneasy?
I’ve come to know the shame of this blood.
It’s different to a blow to the head, a deep laceration to the chest.
The blood from a woman’s uterus is unclean.
At a time when women are losing power to make decisions over their own bodies, it's worth asking…
Why is this blood different?
