The Female Gaze

The female gaze:

1. Reclaiming the body and using it as a tool ... with the intention of using it to communicate a feeling- seeing.

2. Talking about how we become what men see ... my effect when I am seen -- the gazed gaze.

3. Returning the gaze -- daring to say 'I see you seeing me' ... 'I don't want to be the object any longer, I want to be the subject.'

The female gaze [is] a conscious effort to create empathy as a political tool. 

--Jill Solloway (TIFF, 2016)
