// Research Paper Abstract //
"This fieldwork was conducted with Lebanese women who were victims of domestic violence, who have since left or divorced their husbands and are currently under the care of a non-governmental organization, KAFA, which fights for the eradication of all forms of violenceagainst women in the country. Through semi-structured interviews with the women, I learned that domestic violence is highly prevalent in many forms in Lebanon, and that this is accepted asa cultural norm. Women victims of gender-based violence are not supported by societal structures family, friends, police, lawmakers, and judges; and they are led to believe that they deserve, or are at fault for, oppression. A social revolution is necessary to change social customs, perceptions, and legal structures in order to protect and support women who have become victims of violent acts that were directed toward them simply because of their sex."
// Video Interview Coming Soon! //
The final illustration was decided to be shown at the United Nations Seminar on the topic "The Oppression and Violence Against Women." There will be a video interview with the client alongside the final piece that will be added later on, so you can get an in-depth talk about the topic and the inspiration for the illustration. Also, you will be able to see the full-scale of the final design.
