The “Demonstrator’s Bags” originated from the clear backpacks protestors were asked to carry at the 2017 Women’s March on Washington. The clear bags struck me as a metaphor—a container for the hidden stories of women’s lives.

Demonstrator's Bags: Untold Stories, 2019, was an outdoor performance. The bag was filled with people's responses to questions about femininity that were written on pieces of paper, rolled up and put in the bag.
