In 1975, VARDA was asked to join a program by Antenna 2 Channel. The program asked the question, “what is woman?” to 7 women, giving 7 minutes to explain. VARDA extended the length to 8 minutes and collected feedback from various women. Women that differ in age (including a little girl), appearance, and thoughts appear – mostly naked - and talk about sex, lust, and pregnancy. They show their bodies as they are, shattering the women’s body imagery that media, advertisement, and customs have distorted. This short asks what it is to be a woman and seeks the answer.
