Valerin Solanas wrote the S.C.U.M. manifesto between 1965-1967. A year later she self-published it, then distributed and sold on the streets of New York, trying to convince women to join the organization. This text remains as an important source of SCUM action. Inspires, provokes, produces intimacy. In the series of SCUM photos is performed a kind of exegesis of the Solanas manifesto. Selected excerpts of the manifesto appear on the body of the girls militia members, as an ornament, but are a manifestation of their beliefs as well .
