Welcome to the Virtual Photo-Shoe Project!


In past years, activists and advocates shared selfies explaining why abortion should be safe and legal in their countries, and why they were speaking out against abortion stigma. Out of their submissions, we created beautiful Virtual Murals.

This year, we are continuing the efforts of collecting pictures and photos from all around the world so we can create a #StepIntoOurShoes mural of abortion stories.

You can send a photo of your shoes together with your story of why you chose to have an abortion, or why you support access to safe abortion services. You can make this as personal as you want.

Feel free to choose any shoes, boots, sandals, or footwear that you wish – you can even go barefoot! You are free to share as much as you wish in the photo so long as we can see the shoes.

This will lead to an interactive, artistic and visual collection of stories which you will be able to see, read and share.

Photo-Shoe Steps:

  1. Write down your own story of why you decided to have an abortion, or why you support access to safe and legal abortion. Make this as personal as you like. You can share details such as your age, country, first name (or pseudonym), or you can keep your submission as anonymous as you want.
  2. Snap a photo of your shoes! Then email the photo of your shoes together with your story to sept28global@wgnrr.org. All photo contributions will be a part of the shoe virtual mural. Photos and stories will also be posted on the September 28 website and WGNRR Facebook page.
