Bloody Woman is Lana Lopesi’s exploration of identity: of what it means to be Sāmoan, of the diaspora and a woman. Her essays cover an extensive range of issues, from representations of brown joy, to abortion, to the Teine Sā, but the common thread that binds her writing together is bodies; specifically, what it is like for Lopesi to exist in a brown Sāmoan female body in Aotearoa New Zealand.
