An Italian artist looking to raise awareness of violence against women has unveiled a series of posters featuring doctored, roughed-up faces of top political figures such as Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
The “Just Because I am a Woman” campaign created by AleXsandro Palombo, which is currently on display in Milan, also features altered portraits of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French first lady Brigitte Macron.
“I am a victim of domestic abuse. I am paid less. I’ve experienced genital mutilation,” reads a message underneath each of the posters, according to the BBC. “I do not have the right to dress as I want. I can’t decide who I’m going to marry. I was raped.”
