Do you dread the warmer times of the year, because people comment on your body all the time?
Do you sometimes want to intervene in situations that you find yourself in, but can’t find the right words/ don’t know what to do?
It can be hard to find a verbal comeback to catcalling or other forms of street harassment. Handing someone a card can be a good way to intervene, to break up the situation and slightly confuse the aggressor; you regain power, without having to stick around and give an explanation.

She had several exhibitions in Ukraine and Belarus. She likes to think that art exists to expand the scope of our perception and to get rid of prejudices and stereotypes. Her work is about the formation of female sexuality, freedom and violence – physical, sexual, psychological. She sees violence as a lack of freedom to be yourself.
