On November 12, 2001?at a time when promoting peace was viewed as a potential act of treason?45 women in Northern California protested an impending war in Afghanistan by spelling out the word PEACE with their naked bodies. Thus was born Baring Witness. When the protest photo aired on CBS Sunday Morning, esteemed journalist Bob Schieffer quipped, ?I was hoping for a close-up.? His remark caused co-co-founder Donna Sheehan to realize ?the [feminine] power of our [nakedness] to awaken our male leaders and stop them in their tracks.? Ms. Sheehan and partner Paul Reffell created the organization to restore ?the power of the feminine to its rightful place as the protector of life.? BaringWitness.com has been a do-it-yourself resource featuring dozens of protest photos from around the world.
