“This new body of work, Anti-Rape Cloak, focuses on the responsibility women have to not be raped. I have created a full body cloak to ensure that men will not by chance catch a glimpse of an exposed arm or knee and be so overcome with lust that they will not be able to control themselves. I have taken the cloak on my travels to model the full range of situations where it has proved effective.”
