Art by María María Acha-Kutscher, from her Indignadas series (Italian student protester kissing a riot police officer, Italy 2013). 


"The aim of the Indignadas (outraged women) series is to make women's efforts more visible and place women at the center of these social struggles". See more on Acha-Kutscher's work here. Many thanks to the artist!
