An advertising campaign has put Buckingham Palace press officers in a real quandary. For the first time, British royalty will not take legal action against the company that has used the image of Catherine of Cambridge without your consent.
This is a poster by the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women (happened last Thursday, November 25) that invites reflection to denounce and raise awareness about this global problem that kills tens of thousands of women every year around the world.
“She denounced him, but they killed her anyway”, is the name of the work of the Italian artist AleXsandro Palombo. The series portrays Ursula von der Leyen, Letizia Ortiz, Christine Lagarde, Kamala Harris, Marine Le Pen, Anne Hidalgo, and the Duchess of Cambridge as victims of gender violence.
Palombo relaunches the debate with a campaign similar to that of 2019: world leaders like the Duchess of Cambridge with a beaten face, showing the urgency of the situation for all women, but also for the most “powerful” that, like others, can die under the blows of a man.
Through these portraits but also the legend that accompanies them “She denounced him. But nobody believed him. But she was left alone. But it was not protected. But he was not arrested. But they killed her anyway ”, aleXsandro Palombo reminds us of the truth of the violence suffered by women.
