Collage made from confessions of anonymous rape/abuse survivors, submitted to a tumblr blog, painted over with acrylics.

What woman inspires you? Is it your mother, your first grade teacher or your best friend? Or maybe it’s Malala Yousafzai or Rosa Parks? For International Women’s Day tomorrow (March 8), we’re sharing photos on Instagram of women who inspire us with the hashtag #sheinspires.
Please join us by posting a picture (or pictures!) of a woman who inspires you on Instagram with the #sheinspires hashtag. If you don’t have an Instagram account, share a photo here and use the #sheinspires hashtag — we’ll be resharing some of our favorites. http://www.halftheskymovement.org/sheinspires
