Last week, we previewed "I Didn't Ask For It: Rape Is a Crime, Being Raped Is Not," a Saturday gathering at Confluence Park at which the Guerilla Urban Art Force planned to display 150 flags fighting the blame-the-victim mentality. "It was a very powerful and moving day," notes GUAR's Bridget Hill, who helped conceive the art project/consciousness-raising project after the man accused of raping one of her friends was acquitted.

For more details about the event, featuring original works from people from San Diego to London, read this post on the I Didn't Ask For It blog, and check out a slew of stirring photos provided by Hill on view below.
