Feminist Graffiti –Danielle Hakim
Feminist Graffiti captured on the defaced mural 5/3/2016.
The statement "Kill Graffiti Removal Men" may refer to the #killallmen social media trend started in 2014 and is perhaps a commentary on the graffiti removal undertaken by Yarra City Council of previous feminist graffiti made on the mural in response to the Nost tag which upset many community members.

All is not lost- Artists response
On International Women's Day, March 8 2016, artists Megan Evans and Eve Glenn oversaw the transformation of the defaced mural tagged by Nost into a new message: ‘ALL IS NOT LOST’.
The artistic intervention, led by Megan and Eve with in-kind support from Yarra City Council, was intended to be an interim response to the vandalism. The Council is working with the artists on how a permanent solution could be achieved in the future.
