Tomiris. Self-acceptance.

Acceptance of yourself is a difficult path, especially when you live in a society that daily hinders you, your development, tries to impose your opinion, traditions, makes you bend under it. Discrimination, harassment, misogyny, tyranny are a small part of what women in Central Asia have to face.
Tomiris found the strength in herself to become herself, while not giving up her ethnic origin, but on the contrary accepting all its beauty, sexuality and spirituality.
