Street Defense: Stop #5

The last artist is found around the world in Cairo, Egypt where she exposes the unjust harrasment of women. This piece is called “No to Street Harassment” and while it sends the same message to offenders, these pieces are more powerful as women in these countries truly have little to no rights (Pabón). Muslim women are forced to use alternative methods to portray their suffering in anonymous ways. Many times these messages would not be reached by others, however, their street precense and avaliability on instagram allows their voices to be heard. There is also an online exhibition showcasing the various methods of relinquihsing their cries. These last few moments of the tour should be held in silience, ending on a solemn note that many victims will never be heard, but with the help of these artists who share on Instagram, will find expression.
