In Bnei Brak, an Israeli city whose population is mostly ultra-orthodox, there is a disturbing phenomenon - advertising signs with images of women on them are being ripped by ultra-orthodox men who believes that women should only be shown dressed modestly enough. The sleeves must cover the elbows, skirts must hide the knees and hair should be hidden as well.
The Israeli advertising agency “Twisted" decided to use that habit, and created a poster that hides another poster under it. 24 hours after the sign was hanged, the picture of the model was ripped and the message was exposed:
International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women
oh that’s brilliant.
So. I submitted a DMCA Copyright takedown notice for about 10+ blogs that reposted this drawing without credit and they were all removed quickly, but so was the original image. I’m fixing the original post so it shows up again, but I think all 68,000 some notes from before will show up as “This image has been removed at the copyright holder’s request.” Sorry for the confusion. You may have to “re-like” or re-reblog it for it to show up again if you did any of that before.
This drawing is being stolen repeatedly and being reposted without any credit. I’m finding it all over Tumblr and Pinterest and WeHeartIt (I fucking hate weheartit). That’s cool. Great. I’m glad people like it. But please give proper credit. And a lot of people who are stealing this image are turning it black and white. Please don’t do that. It looks gross. I will cut you.
tl;dr: This drawing belongs to me. I made it. It’s mine. Proper credit would be appreciated. If you see it in black and white it was stolen. If you see that someone has stolen this image, go shame them. Thanks.
