Image Statement: After the overturn of Roe v Wade last June, I have been devastated - thinking not just of the young women who are most immediately affected, but also of the older generations of women who fought so hard for equal rights and control of our own reproductive choices. A house form brings to mind personal boundaries. It isn't too great a stretch to draw a line between our feminist history and the idea that the Supreme Court's decision on Roe is akin to burning down someone else's house.
