all those ragged scars is one woman’s journey navigating what it means to be female during the turn of the 20th century.

What does it mean to grow up at the intersection of poverty and conservatism, while watching the media portray women as independent and empowered? What does it mean to navigate the landscape of feminism without signposts? What are the ramifications of embracing sexuality as power? How do we reconcile the struggle to be both what our families need and expect, and also what we believe ourselves to be?
