Seattle Journal for Social Justice Cover Art

Cover art for Volume 14, Issue 2 of the Seattle Journal for Social Justice.

I reported on access to contraception and unintended pregnancies among young women in Kenya in 2014. There I discovered that the true face of adversity is not apparent in statistics and academic papers. Rather, it is found in the strength and vulnerability of individual people. My experiences speaking to young, Kenyan girls and women about intimate and often frightening situations inspired the artwork for this issue.
