This book written by academics, critics and fellow practitioner features the 30 artists that were chosen for the the touring exhibition 'WOWB' or 'Who Owns Women's Bodies?'. "WOMB, a multi-media art exhibit was an experiment. When the invited artists were informed about WOMB's objective to provoke thinking and debate on women's reproductive health and rights, they voluntarily gathered to discuss women's issues as perceived by doctors, researchers and health workers who listened and worked closely with women. This exchange provided insight into how woman perceived her body, and how such perception affected her position in the home and the workplace, her relationships and her entire life. They also looked into how images of women in the contemporary visual arts or even poetry can strengthen or denigrate their being." - excerpt from curator's notes by Imelda Cajipe-Endaya. With foreword by Bienvenido Lumbera.
Please note that the first edition of the catalogue was published in 2001 during the touring period.
