#Supersheroes is a project by Lithuanian grassroots movement Women Speak.
Women Speak recruited 5 women, who currently are staying at Vilnius Crisis Centre, to pose in a photoshoot dressed as supersheroes. The goal of this project is to show that women, who choose to leave their abusive partners, are strong and inspiring: they can become role models for other women, who still are suffering violence and abuse.
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO) 1 in 3 of women worldwide have experienced either physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence or non-partner sexual violence in their lifetime. However, most of this violence is abuse by intimate partner. This is why it is very important to empower women to take action and leave abusive relationships before it is too late.
