PROBLEM
In Morocco, 6 out of 10 women are victims of domestic violence. Abuse is not only commonplace; it’s also being normalized. Stated-owned TV channel, 2M, caused global outrage when the show “Sabbahiyate” aired how to cover up bruises with makeup, in order to hide the marks of abuse.


SOLUTION

Shortly after the TV channel aired the tutorial, with JWT Casablanca, we helped ENTI.MA (Moroccan influential fashion and lifestyle online magazine) air its own response. In a video that offered to teach women how to remove makeup without damaging their skin, a famous fashion blogger is shown gently removing her makeup, slowly revealing the dark bruises that lay beneath. As the blogger stares hauntingly into the camera, a message appears on the screen: “In Morocco, 6 out of 10 women are victims of domestic violence. Do not cover up his abuse. Show it.”


RESULTS

The video went viral, helping to drive conversation about women’s rights protections in Morocco. In fact, in just 24 hours, the video reached 3,000,000 views, and was shared over 6,000,000 times across social media. The international and national press talked about the campaign. Finally, as the campaign grew, local politicians were pressured to reconsider existing laws which don’t protect women against violence.

Following the same campaign, we also created a fake makeup remover. The print comes with a wipe to be tested directly on the print. Once applied, bruises appear.
