Roma woman. Take control over one’s own image

2012. Piotr Wójcik

Simone de Beauvoir in the introduction to The Second Sex described a woman as “Other”, socially “secondary” in the relation with a man – “the first one”, constituting the order and the matrix according to which culture is built. Those famous words are still up-to-date. Depending on a community in which a woman functions, her “secondary” position reveals itself differently, is of different visual shape.
