My Body, My Message

The female body as medium, and as message. How can a woman determine how she is perceived by the world, and even by herself? On this edition of Making Contact, we hear stories of women who are using their bodies for political protest, and as tools of self-empowerment forcing everyone to reevaluate their perspectives on the female form.
