“I am not free while any woman is unfree, even when her shackles are very different from my own.”

― Audre Lorde

Brazilian Street Artist Panmela Castro is unveiling her new three story high mural in Rio de Janeiro that acknowledges the sisterhood that comes from shared pain. She calls it “Dororidade” and tells BSA that it explains the relationship of affection and solidarity between women who have bonded through experiences of anguish and misery.

“It creates an image of two black women joined by their hair, sisters of shared minds, ideas, experiences,” says the artist, who has painted murals advocating for women’s rights, power, and showcased beauty in more than 30 cities around the world. In addition to overt violence, Castro says that this mural is addressing, “The pain that hurts when being attacked by machismo and the pain that hurts when being attacked by racism.”

The mural will be launched on November 20th, Black Consciousness Day, in Rio de Janeiro, with a big party from 4 to 8 pm.
