Focusing on China’s booming abortion industry,“What We Talk About When We Talk About Abortion”is about a post-abortion support group that includes five women talking about their experiences. Through the issue of abortion, I want to introduce problems and conflicts associated with women’s rights and identities. Using five distinct characters, the work depicts women with different social backgrounds and how they interact. The intent of this work is to open a debate on how patriarchal mentality in culture consciously and unconsciously influences women and how they submit to and blindly follow patriarchal social standards.”
