Although they have experienced immense suffering, a dozen women from India who were victims of acid attacks have demonstrated that they are not victims, but fighters.
The women who posed for "Bello," a calendar launched by New Delhi-based group Stop Acid Attacks, are helping to redefine beauty.
The calendar features women who were disfigured by acid attacks in India--most at the hands of people close to them such as boyfriends or relatives.
In an interview with The Huffington Post, photographer Rahul Saharan said he was happy to be a part of the project as it has made the girls feel "confident, courageous and strong."
Read The Huffington Post's article for more information. You can purchase the article through Paltan, a social volunteering website. The proceeds from the calendar sales will go to rehabilitation efforts of acid attack survivors in India.
