Image Statement: Listen to the distant voice reflects women’s role and voices in the movements and marches happening in the past few years of my life, including the Green Movement in Iran, 2009-2010; Women’s March 2017, in Boston; and the Vigil for Sara Everard, 2021, in England. By depicting the different movements in this work, I establish connections to societies that are too easily dismissed as "the other." I aim to demonstrate that violence against women is related, even if the practices differ between cultures.
