In India, bride burning takes place approximately once every 2 hours. In Asia alone, one million children are working in the sex trade. Violence and abuse towards women takes place everywhere. This installation of women who stand on a named scarf celebrate their dignity while telling stories of hope." printed on Epson Radiant White Watercolor paper, cotton, vellum, Canson Mi Teintes, and cork paper.
