In her latest work, Shqipe Mehmeti is motivated to show the feminist story even in a more pronounced manner because she lives in a society where women and their needs are considered taboo even in the 21st century.
People are still locked in sterile social frames, where pointing fingers to another is the main activity, while accusation is everyday contemplation.
Local women are still considered only an instrument of human reproduction, someone who has to continue the family or clan line, someone who is deprived of the right of personal choice, of own desires, of freedom of speech and even of freedom of action.
By means of her artistic end considerations, this female artist directly addresses issues related to the needs and nature of women, being the same for every woman, and even for those women living in the less developed and patriarchal communities as such.
Although confronting the accusers and taboo advocates is not easy, direct reaction, nevertheless, represents the best tool in the struggle for "freedom from the shackles and clutches" and the need for unrestricted "flight."
