The Necklace of Dismantling

From pure mathematics to feminist theory, here we have "The Necklace of Dismantling", featuring "black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet" and feminist theorist, Audre Lorde.

Artist's Statement: Audre Lorde said, "The master's tools will never dismantle the master's house." And, boy howdy, was she ever right about that.
Remind yourself that replacing one broken paradigm with another broken paradigm isn't going to get us anywhere.

I do like the name, too. Reminds me of all those mythical, historical, fantastical objects of power that were so important and revered they were given titles.
