My take on femininity focuses on strength in vulnerability, weighing joy with grief in equal measures, and empowerment, rather than judgement.

Society's penchant for fame, wealth and immortality. A female passerby fabricates a 'witness' statement for TV coining the infamous phrase 'Chick Chick Boom'. The 1% hold the wealth, continually demanding more. I wonder why? Mother nature will reclaim us all and we take nothing with us when we go.
