Giant photographs and hundreds of pairs of women’s underwear were displayed on Copacabana Beach on Monday, in protest at the gang rape of a 16-year-old girl in Rio de Janeiro.
Photographer Marcio Freitas took pictures of 20 women who were victims of violence, and together with the NGO Rio de Paz, displayed them on the beach to protest against gender-based violence in Brazil. Organisers of the project, called “I will never be silent”, plan to exhibit 100 of these pictures in other cities in Brazil to raise awareness about the issue. Demonstrators said the city was not safe for women.
