In an honest introspection of womanhood in her life, Fiona A. Cheong reveals and imagines personal interactions between the women she encounters growing up in this written monologue. Acting on love, they attempt to shelter and protect the next generation of women through their actions and words. In their endeavours, these actions of love entrap them in a stasis of stereotyped femininity while showing a comfortable familiarity between each other.
Reflecting on her own experiences and upbringing, Fiona investigates the impact of language on formative childhood years. Through it, she hopes to shed light on how seemingly innocuous words adults say, inform a child’s perspective of the world.
