In Poland in October 2020, near total ban abortion law was announced by the Constitutional Tribunal, under the rules of dominant party Law and Justice. This systematic and institutional violence on women is not a new problem. Since the transformation from communism to capitalism in 1989 the roles of women in Poland have become degrading, and traditional and conservative models of women/gender as a housewife/mother have been promoted in the media. Catholic Church works actively with the government, supporting the humiliating ideas against women rights, promoting a patriarchal model of the society. Polarity is a dialogue between control, violence and religion and symbols of womanhood and represents the frustration and anger of the unfolding dramaturgy taking place in Poland.
