Jacket in leftover yarn

After knitting the Seyfarth Folklore jacket and the Flower power, I had a serious amount of good quality thin wool in many colours. Too good not to be used, to colourful to be easy to find a good way of using the yarn.
I have a 12 year old that loves colours-so I decided to aim at a cardican for her- with a very basic pattern repeated in different colours.
 At the same time, I would like to make a statement. Thinking about Pussy Riot in prison for singing, Norwegian girl being put to prison because she was raped in Saudia Arabia - and they "played" the Sex without being married card to put the victim in prison. I would like my girl to be aware these incidents- and keep on fighting for fundamental human rights for girl worldwide. So I am mixing that into the cardigan.
Lets hope I do not run out of yarn...and that the garment fits
