She Was Asking For It: Getting Dressed After Sexual Assault, Curated by Laura Jane Kenny
She Was Asking For It is an exhibition that considers how women who’ve experienced sexual assault display their identity through clothing. On display were outfits from the closets of six New York City survivors. Viewers can observe the diversity of each survivor’s approach to sharing their identity and personal style while eschewing vulnerability. This exhibition directs the attention of the viewer to think of life after assault, about each day, when these women wake up and decide what to wear. This exhibition was on view at Judson Memorial Church in downtown New York City in May, 2015.
