On Monday, Camilla Akraka's artwork took its place on the Town Hall Square in Umeå. The red cougar "Listen" is Sweden's first metoo monument and marks the municipality's position against sexual harassment.

"If you want to make a sound that you want to hear, you have to take in from your toes, that's what it's all about here," artist Camilla Akraka told SVT earlier.

On Saturday, it was inaugurated on a crowded town hall square. In attendance were, among others, Fatta founder Ida Östensson and Helena Smith (S), chairman of the cultural committee.

- Puman is needed. It means that we continue to talk about all problems even after Metoo, says Östensson.
