This work is from a series titled "Be Still" It is about the systematic oppression of women in religious environments that they are born into. People's actions are directly influenced by how they are raised. When we are told to believe something from birth, such as the fact that women are meant to be gentle and subservient to men we tend to believe it. We teach our own daughters the same thing. It is tender. It is cruel.
