Indian Women Speak Out Against Rape Through Illustration
The 'Fearless' poster collective is a powerful series that conveys feelings many women aren't allowed to speak about
A sixteen-year-old American girl made headlines this week when she began speaking out against her recent rape, but in many other countries, women aren't allowed to talk about things like rape. In 2012, for example, a 23-year-old woman was gang raped and beaten by six men while traveling on a bus. Her injuries were so bad that she died a few days later while undergoing treatment. The case sparked worldwide media coverage and protests all over India, also resulting in many new laws passed that were designed to help and protect women. It also inspired the “Fearless” collection.
