HIDE

Cause of Death
BY
Jyoti Mistry

Women’s bodies are always at risk. An autopsy report describes the physical impact on the body that results in death but hides the structural and recurrent violence on women’s bodies that leads to femicide. Through archival film footage, animation and words an experience of structural violence against women is exposed.
