“I chose those words because it is what the women at the vigil in Clapham Common chanted,” she continued.

“We deserve to feel safe whilst walking at night - it’s horrible.”

Brooke will be selling these prints and donating half of the proceeds to Doncaster Women’s Aid.

“When these things happen to women we feel gross but it’s not our fault,” she said.

“It’s happened to me and so many others.

“I’m really proud of all the women coming forward to share their experiences.”

Brooke hopes that her art can help to open the discussion further in Doncaster and allow other women to feel comfortable talking about their fears.

“I’m not making a big political statement,” she said.

“It’s not feminist propaganda, just art with a deep meaning that can hopefully bring women together.”
