No Rights

Women, for centuries, have been denied rights to their own bodies.  Just recently China has given women permission to have two babies instead of just one child.

Symbolism: The expectant Mother has no mouth to protest. When women dutifully follow the rules being “good little girls” who “mustn’t cause a fuss” and surrender their power to others (“WE know what is good for you”)…it creates women without mouths to speak their truth and who don’t think for themselves.
