Censorship of Women's Art in Poland

Getting excited by the case of Dorotea Nieznalska; a Polish visual artist who was taken to court by conservative Catholics for her installation Pasja (2002). The piece contained a close up shot of a body builder working out as well as a cross with the image of a penis on it. Nieznalska's victory in the courts was hailed as a success for freedom of speech by liberal media.
