My Identity As A Woman In Today's Society

By Cecilia Connelly

My identity as a woman can be represented by a square of clay. The original shape and plainness of the clay when first looked upon is the identity that was slapped upon not only me, but women everywhere.
The day we were born we were told; mother, wife, caretaker, homemaker. The clay, after being molded and shaped into art, is the identity I have created for myself, my identity as an artist, as a writer, as an activist, as a student, and as a revolutionary. Every time the clay is molded differently or has something added to it, that is me endlessly creating my new identity, endlessly creating myself.
