This Artist Created An Awareness Series By Portraying Cartoon Characters As Victims Of Violence Or Breast Cancer

Street art is a great medium to spread awareness. It can reach lots of people by being placed in the right place and at the right time.

The 19th of October was known to be the International Day to Combat Breast Cancer, and now, on the upcoming 23rd of November, there will be a commemoration of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. These two important dates and issues deserve all the attention possible.

With that in mind, Italian artist Alexsandro Palombo, a fan of pop culture who usually plays with modern icons and makes awareness series, used Simpsons characters and Disney princesses to pose in his street art as victims of violence or cancer to address those painful topics.

Alexsandro also made a campaign referring to breast cancer by doing a series of Disney Princesses called “Survivor”

These visuals are meant to remind us that breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer among women in 140 of 184 countries worldwide

If breast cancer is diagnosed early, it increases the chances of successful treatment

Sorry if this is Incredibly Offensive, but why do they [the princesses] all have the exact same [injuries] as each other in the first series?

Most people are right handed. If a right handed punch connects with a person standing in front of them, that person is likely to sustain the most substantial injuries on the left side of the face. Or so I've heard. Yeah.

I like the message and the reason behind it... but o need to say it. Not a fan of the art. This whole post seems lazy which is sad since it is such an important message. I've just seen the message done so much better so many times.

A reverse thing would be useful too, men can be abuse victims like women.

Why is this always the first thing I see on posts about women's experiences (in this thread both domestic violence and breast cancer)? Men are abused. More often than not they aren't believed. It is wrong. We had a toxic masculinity post the other day I think, it was an important underscore to what you are saying. Please can we just let a discussion happen, about domestic violence and confidence for women who have had mastectomies in this particular instance, without being reminded that men suffer too? Yes, I agree that some abused princes should also have been shown. I guess I'm just tired of seeing the comments under women's rights issues being about that men suffer it too. Because yes this is important, and isbeing discussed on other threads. TLDR: Yes both genders suffer. Can we have the conversation abouts women's rights without making it primarily about men and me-too ism? Keep on topic, on even one women's rights thread, just once?
