Hi Mila, very neat idea. I like incorporating ways to protect against flooding with ways to protect women against violence. The story of Medusa was very evocative and made me go back and read about her some more. I agree with the comment that images would help because I had difficulty understanding the how the form would support the function. Would the monuments be physical spaces that shelter members of the community watching out for female travelers? Or are they monuments that offer more symbolic protection?
