The Woman Project wants to underline their pivotal role and to hightline their dignity by shooting them in their daily lives and posting them on the walls of their country.

On the other hand, by posting the same images if these women in Western countries, the project allows everyone to feel concerned by their condition and connects, through art, the two different worlds.

Kenya, South-Sudan, Sierra.-Leone, Liberia - The violence suffered by woman there is the extreme expression of discrimination. The ethnic wars in Africa are a source of the worst crimes on woman. When meeting them, JR wants to testify of their force, their courage and their noble struggle: first to live, then to exist.
