Hikaru Cho and Amnesty International: My Body My Rights

A woman is refused contraception because she doesn’t have her husband’s permission. A man is harassed by police because he’s gay. A teenager is denied a life-saving termination because abortion is illegal in her country.

Japan-based artist Hikaru Cho created a series of body art images exclusively for Amnesty International’s newest campaign My Body My Rights. Hikaru Cho and Amnesty created four videos on the subject of sexual and reproductive rights.
