Women of Average Height: A Generation of Women at the Conquest of Their Intimacy / La Esfera de los Libros, 2007
These are flesh and blood women who take on and proudly fulfil the juggling acts that modern society demands of them: who conjugate the pleasures of their private territory with their interest for political issues. Women of average height pay a high price for the adventure of growing and being themselves.
Some women have gone as far as to renounce personal success while others have resigned themselves to live in inestable territories, to postpone maternity and fight against toxic emotions. To face the conquest of their own bodies and the infamous female insecurity. Freehand, Joana Bonet sketches the private and public landscapes of todayâs woman.
