Since I started thinking of the idea of 'Girls' World', a series of photos on violence against women and girls, I thought to put them in the street to build awareness. But I didn't do it until I read about the Russian bill which decriminalises domestic violence against family members, unless it is a repeat offence or causes serious medical damage [1].

On the occasion of the International Women's Day 2017 (8th March), 5 of the images were printed as postcards with information on the reverse, and about 1000 were stuck around London, Paris and Berlin between the nights of the 7th and the 9th March.
