[H]er body is getting away from her, it is no longer the
straightforward expression of her individuality; it becomes
foreign to her; and at the same time she becomes for others a
thing: on the street men follow her with their eyes and comment
on her anatomy. She would like to be invisible; it frightens her to
become flesh and to show her flesh.
