Art project against rape by Godelieve Smulders
Stoprape.today is a global nonverbal protest action against rape.
Women’s Day 2020 www.norape.info Call for action
Let’s create a worldwide symbol against rape, which is easy to make and show!
What does the “No Rape” protest sculpture look like?
Let’s make use of an universal “stop sign”: a stretched hand with spread fingers.
In the hand, there is a round empty space as a symbol of destruction.
The beam through the middle stands for an international no entry sign.
3 easy ways to create a NoRape symbol
1) The easiest way, is to draw the symbol inside your hand.
Draw the circle with the beam across it, in the palm of your hand with or without the text ‘No Rape’.
You can open your hand and show it.
2) Make a protest hand symbol against rape
Draw a line around your hand on cardboard, paper or wood
Enlarge the form to the size you want, then cut it out.
Now you have created your own NoRape hand! If you would like to, make a selfie with your NoRape protest hand, and mail it to: firstname.lastname@example.org
3) Make a protest hand sculpture against rape.
Should you like to do this, you must create two hands instead of just one. You can design your own two hands, or download the PDF of the orange hands on our site (www.norape.info). Enlarge them if you would like.
Cut the hands out of paper, cardboard, wood, plexiglass etc.
Make a slit on top of one hand, and another one on the bottom of the other hand.
Your two hands are now ready to slide together.
You have now created an object that can stand by itself, a sculpture!
This will be your nonverbal protest symbol, your own support to a worldwide protest against rape.
