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)
