Intimate Femicide in the Light by Wendy Lessick Bookatz
In Australia one woman a week is murdered by her current or former partner. These heinous crimes are called Intimate Femicide.
Three years ago I made the decision to bring Femicide “into the light” using words and images. At the same time these messages and depictions are sometimes upside down, overprinted, obscure. I deliberately convey and interpret the killing of a woman by her spouse or partner without being overwhelmed by the subject matter.
