“Leaving the home on that last night, I kiss her hands. You were so important, I tell her. You were so loved”
Sinéad Gleeson, Constellations: Reflections From Life

“The shedding of blood has historically been seen as a male act of heroism: from right-of-passage fistfights, to contact sports and combat. Infrequent, random events seen as standalone milestones; stories to tell once the pain - and enough time - has passed. Female bleeding is more mundane, more frequent, more getonwithit, despite its existence being the reason that every single life begins”
Sinéad Gleeson, Constellations: Reflections From Life

“Hair has been used to define women racially, sexually, religiously. It makes them into temptresses: represents a troika of femininity, fertility, fuckability”
Sinéad Gleeson, Constellations: Reflections From Life
