Ghada Amer

Egyptian born american artist Ghada Amer's work depicts erotic images of women that you would not expect to be created by a women.
She creates feminist images that revolt against the masculin ideal of femini beauty, she is clever in that shows explicit sexual acts by using typical delicate feminin handycrafts such as embroidery. Her whole idea is that she wants the female body to be reclaimed from men by women.
"I believe that all women should like their bodies and use them as tools of seduction," Amer stated
