Lady Gaga = The Literature Review Quilt’s second movable piece

This is just a quick note to share my progress on the quilt’s latest element, it’s the second hankie belonging to my paternal grandmother which I mentioned last week. I am embroidering onto the hankie certain style elements connoting the contemporary icon of intersectionality – Lady Gaga. The first element that I have completed is the ‘hair-bow’ wig of Gaga’s, and the selection of this particular image is a direct reference to the 2013 text Gaga Feminism: Sex, Gender and the End of Normal.
