Guerilla Doll

The menopause of women is still a taboo, something that should not be seen or discussed. All women between the ages of 45-60 go through the menopause. In the Netherlands this is more than 2 million women. Characteristics of the menopause are hot flashes, mood swings, sadness and insomnia. It is a phase that has an impact on many women and sometimes lasts up to 10 years.

 

Guerilla Doll literally makes the transition visible by placing miniatures of Menopause Dolls (miniature images of women in the transition) in the public space. The miniatures are made from recycled material (PLA) which is biodegradable.

 

The Guerrilla dolls will be available from Friday September 30 in central and southern Utrecht.

 

Join us and break the taboo: take a guerrilla doll and put it somewhere else in the public space.

 

See www.vuurvrouw.nl for more information about the transition.

 

Guerrilla doll was made possible in part with support from the cultural fund of the municipality of Utrecht.
