Roberto Cigna / Exploitation of girls in Liberia

View Portfolio

Roberto Cigna sheds light on a set of contradictions that puts girls in Liberia at risk.

While it’s considered taboo to discuss sex with young girls in that country, the girls live in a society that accepts relationships between young women and much older men in positions of authority, such as teachers.  In Liberia, it’s common for girls to be exploited for sex.

Cigna’s illustration of a girl pulling down a torn panel with the symbols for men and women on it, draws attention to the subject of sexual exploitation of girls in Liberia.
