WOMEN’S RIGHT: A NESSECITY
What for ages has been whispering, knowing, silencing in secrets of institutions, on work places, in families, in couples… has brutally exploded with the media wave who has seized a new item, rape and sexual assaults accusations against the American producer Harvey Weinstein, and this wave has freed women’s speech. It was necessary: women’s right are now a priority.
WOMEN’S RIGHT: A PRIORITY
To account for it and make a difference in this huge project of women’s right, Le Crayon, defend and illustration of freedom of liberty of expression association, a partnership with the press designers francophone France-Cartoons association and the International Press Drawing of “Estaque”, has chosen its tools, caricature, press drawings, humour because we know the image evocation power, the laugh force and impertinence.
