Woman never becomes her [forbidden] self

“Woman is not born: she is made. In the making, her humanity is destroyed. She becomes symbol of this, symbol of that: mother of the earth, slut of the universe; but she never becomes herself because it is forbidden for her to do so.”
 ~Andrea Dworkin

Painting by Elisabeth Slettnes
