I like to think this symbolises a cutting away of the old stagnant self on a global basis. Where a brighter tomorrow faces all women of all cultures and nationalities who live within brutal regimes. Regimes, whether under the guise of religion or through political policies, the rule of thumb is persecution, torture and then death in the most cruellest of ways.
Added several textures and adjusted with differing blending modes and opacities. Some textures are my own and some from SkeletalMess who generously allows downloads and use of the textures.
