WHY WE NEED NEW HEROINES
WAVE has just published a 28-page brochure with cartoons by female artists, who imagined and presented their vision of an inspirational role model, the character of a Shero – a female hero, a role model who is an agent of positive change in society. The artworks received are the result of an international call published through the Step Up! Campaign in autumn 2018. The story of the cartoon needed to be related to the issue of domestic – psychological and / or sexual violence as it is defined in the Istanbul Convention.
The works received turned out to be very diverse. The Step Up! Campaign coordinating group would like to bring the publication to real life situations – to discussions, workshops, storytelling and other events with the goal of addressing the omnipresence of violence against women and the ways to rise against it.
