naked for a cause

A survey in Brazil revealed that 65% of respondents partly agreed with the statement, if a woman is provocatively dressed, she deserves to be sexually assaulted. Yep, hard to believe, but it's true.

Appalled by the results, Brazilian journalist Nana Queiroz spearheaded the #EuNaoMerecoSerEstrupada (or #IDontDeserveToBeRaped) social media campaign where women are encouraged to post partially nude photos with the hashtag to drive home the point that no matter how a woman is dressed (or not dressed), they don't deserve to be sexually assaulted. And, as the man's sign above points out, "I'm ashamed of being a man and having to say something so obvious."

Powerful stuff.
