Combining an art project with critical commentary, Fusco addresses the role of women in the war on terror and explores how female sexuality is being used as a weapon against Islamic terrorists. Using details drawn from actual accounts of detainee treatment in US military prisons, Fusco conceives a field guide of instructional drawings that prompts questions regarding the moral dilemma of torture in general and the use of female sexuality specifically.
