No Voice


No Voice, by Masoumeh Jafari, Afghanistan, 2019

‘Setayesh was a little Afghan girl living in Iran as a refugee. She was kidnapped, raped and killed by an Iranian man. I was really upset about her and her family. There are many girls like Setayesh who had the same experiences and cry in silence because justice didn’t defend them. I decided to paint this picture to honour her memory, and show the pain and heartbreak I feel about what happened’
