I came across this clever campaign against domestic violence while cruising Huffpo earlier today and wanted to share it here. Middle Eastern POPlitical artist Saint Hoax launched this campaign, “Happy Never After,” to bring awareness to domestic violence. In the series, Saint Hoax uses Disney princesses as a prism to illustrate how violence against women can happen to just about anyone. According to his website, his goal is to “encourage victims to report their cases in order for the authorities to prevent it from happening again.”
I’d love to see Saint Hoax do a series in where he features famous perps of violence against women who are celebrated in the media, by their communities, and even passionately defended by other women and girls (and sometimes their victims!) because, well, he can sing or dance or act. Hoax’s take would be interesting.
