Out of the womb and into a prison?

Out of the womb and into a prison?

Sean Lìonadh, 21

Through film and poetry, this entry explores the explosive first moment a woman finds out the gender of her baby. An expecting, maternal mind is perhaps the most vulnerable to society’s anxieties. How then does the media and today’s crushing expectations project fear into our lives before we are born? What choices allow us to break this narrative and focus on the values that are important to us?
