In 2013 Melbourne queer/feminist performance artist Casey Jenkins presented Casting Off My Womb. For 28 days Jenkins knitted a scarf with wool pulled out of her vagina, the work ruminated on fertility and the female body. A clip of the performance was posted online and quickly went viral, clocking up 7.5 million views on YouTube and Jenkins found herself in the middle of a raging storm of negative, violent and sexist comments. Carole Cassier's thoughtful documentary is a timely and thought-provoking look at the insidious silencing of female voices online and a queer woman's defiant refusal to remain silent.
