Photo Gallery: Women in Street Art

In the past few decades Santiago has seen a street art boom. Beautiful murals can be found all over the city ranging from highly strange to highly political. This gallery focuses on the female-empowering images that show the beauty of maternity, proclaim the need for abortion rights, and portray the importance of sexual liberation. Most of these works can be found walking through Barrio Brasil and Barrio Yungay down Huerfanos and Cueto.
