The disturbing conceit of a housewife swallowing inanimate objects may push some away, but those that can stomach it will find a searing exploration of patriarchal control over women’s bodies – an issue more relevant than ever in the US, as anti-choice zealots push closer to overturning abortion rights nationwide.
