“Say No To Non-State Torture. It Is Her Right To Be Free” 

Lino-cut ink print on paper 2011. Purple print 2015 

I created my poster for a UN European poster competition in 2011 on the theme “Say NO to violence against women and girls” to raise awareness as a survivor that non-State torture is a specific form of violence against women and girls and needs recognition. 

Non-State torture is torture perpetrated in the home and other private places. www.nonstatetorture.org 

My inspiration came from the lino-cut prints by Brazilian artist Octavio Roth of the 30 articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights that are displayed along a wall inside the UN building in Geneva. 

My poster goes everywhere in activism with me!
