  • Do you know who she is? It is her death anniversary today.

    She was an Italian artist who started a project called Bride on Tour under a nickname of "Bride of Peace" with her symbolic white wedding dress.

    She wanted everyone to pay attention to the rapes and murders of millions of women with her journey. She wasn't gonna take off her white wedding dress along her journey that would end in Tel-Aviv and therefore she could show her defiled wedding dress as a symbol to those worldwide events happening every hour.

    However, in a country that struggles with savagery, civil war, shame, religion and ignorance, in country of mine, in Turkey, she was raped and choked, murdered brutally.

    A rascal crime against humanity.

    On the road she took to be the voice of all women, she was murdered with the reason she fought against.

    She wanted to be the hero of every women, but she ended up being one of the victim all around the world.

    Rather than a symbol,
    she was an irony at the end.
