Another great article for the Progressive, this time dealing with the issue of rape in the native amreican community. According to the article 1 in 3 native american women has been sexually harassed during her life (usually more then once). In my first sketch - I chose an iconic totem silhouette to frame the woman's face, the other sketch was more direct and graphic with an oversized man's arm holding a ripped piece of clothes. The AD decided to go with the more iconic image... and I went to final. You can read the article here, it's pretty shocking to find out about how widespread the problem is.
