Abstract (English)

Presenting Albert's "Femail" piece - a female executive suit made of chain mail - Jaya refers to the warlike character of the work to call attention to issues of patriarchy in the business world. The author also elaborates on its association with jewellery, and Mount Saint Vincent's predominately feminine population. Biographical notes.
