This Art Installation Displays Experiences Women And Girls Have Had Being Shamed

Artist Suzie Blake has paid tribute to the women who are constantly scrutinized in her exhibit at the Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne, Australia. Society might not accept them, but these women are heroes and Blake recognizes that. In the piece, Wall Of Shamed, she invites any and all women to open up about their experiences with sexism and degradation. 

Knowing that it is often taboo to share one's reactions to anti-feminism, Blake put up the interactive display to express herself and to create a space where other women could do the same. The innovative creator encourages others to send their stories through her website, Instagram, or Twitter, using the "wallofshame" hashtag. 

Her piece does what most art cannot; it celebrates compassion and community and it's gone viral.
