Glory Box

Photography by James Hallihan
Objectified, prized, and degraded by society, women are often seen as a ‘Madonna’ or a ‘whore’, with no middle ground. Our society is bombarded with sexualized imagery of females, objectifying them to create a product capable of satisfying human wants. No longer a person, the female body is but a commodity, a piece of flesh to be bought, sold, and consumed.

Glory, noun; magnificence or great beauty, take great pride or pleasure in.
Box, noun: female genitalia.
