Genital dissociation is a psychological disorder where an individual may feel disconnected from their own body or more specifically genitalia as a result of sexual trauma and insecurities. This is mainly experienced by women as women up to this day still receive unequal treatment compared to males. Deprived of equal rights, disrespected, and prejudiced in all aspects.
My project comprises a gender-inclusive educational centre that aims to educate people through art about the significance of the female genitalia, and a support centre that provides support for women suffering from genital dissociation. It will be a space where women can feel safe and their voices heard.
My project reflects my stance on making women feel safe, heard, supported and empowered. I believe by providing education through art, I am able to alter society’s false perspective hence eradicating society’s prejudice against the female genitalia.
