Nana Queiroz - feedback 222

 

There she is topless in the capital of Brazil. Nana Queiroz singlehandedly stirred the pot in a country where 26% percent of the population thinks women who show too much skin deserve to be raped. “I don’t deserve to be raped” read the words on her arms, and when her photo was posted on the internet, this young, daring journalist found herself at the center of a controversy that’s swept the nation. In the days that followed, she was talked and written about; bombarded with messages of hate and support; and asked all sorts of questions. Then other similar pictures started popping up all over social media, and now in her most recent interview, she’s vowed to keep on fighting to end violence against women in this South American country.
