PLEASE JUST EMPATHY!
Violence against woman and insulting" is a deficiency of many societies nowadays.
It doesn’t matter if it is developing or underdeveloped country;
women are always alone, feeble and unhappy.
People have to comprehend that man and woman should have equal freedom in social life.
Unfortunately, we witness the increasing of the violence towards woman worldwide in the near future.
As Caricaturists, we considered to protest this violence through "emphaty".
We have already investigated and condemned this issue via our drawings. for years.
But this time, we decided to attract attention with a different approach.
Would you like to support battered women which we see on television or the internet
with "Emphaty Photo" as if we got the beating?
That is to say, we are looking for a "battered man" photo from you!
Our aim is to attract attention to this matter and look for a solution internationally.
We call all the male caricaturists to supply this campaign!
SADECE EMPATI LUTFEN!
Gelismis veya gelismemis toplum olmasi bir seyi degistirmiyor.Kadin hep yalniz…
Kadin hep gucsuz… Kadin hep mutsuz…
Erkek, sosyal ve toplumsal yasamda kendisine ne kadar hak taninmissa
ayni esitlikte kadina da taninmasi gerektiginin bilincinde olmali artik!
Son donemlerde ne yazik ki hemen her ulkede kadina siddetin arttigini gormekteyiz.
Karikatur sanatcilari olarak, bu siddeti "empati" yaparak protesto etmeyi dusunduk.
Bu konuyu yillardir irdeliyoruz ve cizgilerimizle kiniyoruz zaten.
Ancak bu kez farkli bir yaklasimla bu konuya dikkat cekmeyi dusunduk.
Medyada surekli gordugumuz siddet gormus, dayak yemis kadinlara
o dayagi bizler yemis gibi "empati fotograf"la destek vermeye ne dersiniz?
Yani, sizlerden "siddet gormus bir erkek" fotografi bekliyoruz.
Amacimiz bu konuya uluslararasi platformda dikkat cekmek ve cozum aramak.
Tum erkek cizerleri bu kampanyaya destek vermeye cagiriyoruz!..
