Voices will be heard through a new art project tackling the nasty experiences and words women have been faced with during their lives.
The We ARE Enough Art Project was developed by two Tasmanian women, Amanda Gill and Christie Cooper, who connected and shared their stories on infertility and an abusive ex-husband.
Gill had wanted to write a book about her fertility journey and Cooper had wanted to pursue her love of photography.
The pair decided to combine their passions and create something to help them heal from the pain they had experienced.
To begin, they wrote down words that had inflicted pain, and then they got naked and wrote them on their bodies. They wrote the word 'enough' on a piece of tape and smothered their mouths.
"It felt so empowering to be able to own the stories on our skin and then removing them, washing them away and letting it go" Cooper said.
From there, the idea of helping other women to heal was born, which developed into the We ARE Enough Art Project.
"We want to create an art piece so profound, so confronting and impactful it hurts to look at it," Gill said.

"An art piece that shines a spotlight on how society treats women and screams back into its face, a face that still has its eyed screwed up tight against the truth, ENOUGH."
Gill and Cooper are asking 1600 women from all backgrounds to join them in making the art piece which will be exhibited once complete.
"We have been surprised at the number of women who have come to us who have never told their stories... to anyone else," Cooper said.
Cooper said the project would benefit from funding, and that the pair were currently searching for monetary help to continue the work.
