A SIMPLE SLASH HIGHLIGHTS SOCIAL CHANGE
The 160 Girls Project wanted to raise awareness among Kenyans that, as a result of a Kenyan High Court decision, the police in that country were now bound to investigate rape cases properly. Something that hadn't been done before. To celebrate the victory, we erected billboards across the country that at first read "Justice is nowhere for child rape victims." Afterwards, the Senator of Meru took a paintbrush to the billboards and drew a bright pink slash through the word "nowhere," transforming the message into one of hope: "Justice is now here for child rape victims." We also created a website to help support the cause, 160girlsproject.com.
