Emilie Appercé on I’m every woman
3 October, 2021
Book recommended by feminist philosopher Deborah Mühlebach during the reading room session organised by Annexe at ZAZ, Zentrum Architektur Zürich. In her first book, The origin of the world, which traces the cultural history of the vulva, as in I’m every woman, Liv Strömquist points out the absence of women in history in general, the lack of attention given to essential things, such as the knowledge of women’s physiology – a lack of vocabulary and a lack of common knowledge about the functions of the female body – Liv Strömquist uses the format of the graphic novel, her stories are told in a particularly playful way but surprising by the accuracy and clarity of her analysis, always full of very precise historical references and sources. I’m every woman gives a face and a presence to the wives of famous men who have suffered harassment.
