This piece was originally created in response to the comments made about women during the 2016 election season. We Hold These Truths to be Self Evident features statements by former and current male politicians about women and their bodies to expose how political figures from across the political spectrum degrade and demean women. The work is intended to make people think about the implications of a culture where political figures use and condone such language.
