It discusses how performance artists such as Ana Mendieta, Yoko Ono, Suzanne Lacy, Judy Chicago, Niki de Saint-Phalle, Valerie Export, the Womanhouse project, Tracey Emin, Karen Finley and Jenny Holzer worked with the theme of rape, before analysing how Sarah Kane treated this in her 1995 play 'Blasted'.
