My piece relates to the theme of unlearning and feminism because the woman is not only hugging herself but a mirror image of her younger self (representing her inner child). Her inner child is also unlearning or healing from her past to become her authentic self - the woman hugging her. This is why the mirror image is also hugging a damaged heart; it is her coming to terms with herself and unlearning all the negativity to make way for a positive future, represented through the leaves and flowers surrounding her.
