‘I Don’t Deserve To Be Raped’- Brazilian Women Pose Nude To Spread Word On Rape [Photos]

share on:

Earlier this week, a study was released that said a startling 65.1 percent of Brazilians either partially or wholly believe that “if dressed provocatively, women deserve to be attacked and raped.” In addition, the study revealed a 58.5 percent complacency with the belief that “if women knew how to behave, there would be less rape.”

Brazilian women reacted to this by starting conversations on social media and even blogs to discuss the study’s revelations making the story a trend for more than 24 hours. In protest, Brazilian journalist Nana Queiroz created a Facebook event and hashtag to confront the outrage. The hashtag is appropriately titled #NãoMereçoSerEstuprada, which translates to ‘#IDon’tDeserveToBeRaped.’

In an organized call to action, on March 28 at 8 p.m. Brazilian local time,women were encouraged to share topless photos of themselves while covering their breasts with a sign that showcased the aforementioned hashtag. The Facebook event also specified that if women were uncomfortable posting topless photos, they should pose fully clothed. The important thing, the journalist explained, was that “they, as women, demonstrate that no one can claim ownership over their bodies either than themselves.”
