Artist’s note: “In this piece I placed a photo of an indigenous girl next to one of a white woman, both pictured crying. I wanted to have a side by side comparison to show that women from all over the world experience various forms of abuse and degradation. I wanted to highlight the fact that it is not just white women who are victims of abuse.”
