A lawyer based in Cape Town, Africa is creating a campaign called “Rock Girl” in order to bring awareness to the horrifying statistic of women being raped. In order to do this, she wants to plant benches all throughout the town that offer “real and symbolic respite from anxiety”. India Baird who thought of this campaign, liked the concept of eyes on the benches in order to give comfort to women; to say people are always watching and will be there to help- helping out the community as well as hands to signify “caution and healing”. With the assistance of city officials, she hopes for additional benches to be distributed through sponsorship.
