Every hour, a woman is abused

Every hour, a woman is abused


This indoor guerilla campaign just got a 2008 Finalist Certificate at the New York Festivals (innovative advertising award). The campaign is from Gabriela Women’s Party (Philippines), a sectoral party dedicated to promoting the rights and welfare of marginalized and under-represented Filipino women through participation in the country’s electoral system and organs of governance.

To advocate awareness on the increasing rate of domestic violence in the Philippines through an ad that can be seen on a regular basis. According to records of the Philippines National Police, a woman is physically abused by her partner every hour.
Modified clocks were placed in offices, women’s dorms, school canteens, police stations, train terminals and other places with high pedestrian traffic. The clock has a picture of an angry man place on the minute hand and a picture of a battered woman placed on the hour hand.
