About project: Artist Michele Pred in collaboration with Janis Anton, Beatriz Escobar, Yvette Molina, Abbey Hayward encourage laughter and fun while engaging the public in conversations about human rights and sexual politics. Her Body Her Business is about doing something for a cause that is engaging, tangible and different. Our group is an eclectic assembly of people with a wide variety of experiences with feminism and reproductive rights. By expanding the scope of the action and inviting even more people to take a direct part, we also mean to help break down the notion of a single feminist persona. It’s all about connecting and sharing.
