‘Break the Silence’ – Zine
Aims & Objective:
The objective of this provocatory expression is to unabashedly underscore the overbearing gravity and sheer magnitude of this issue, a surreptitious systemic and societal plague that is discussed behind iron-clad doors, emblemized by loud tears and hushed whispers. Everyone has a story to tell. Unfortunately for most women, that story usually lies in a harrowing tale of Domestic Violence.
My intention with this zine resides in a jarring representation of an issue that plagues women of all ages. I aim to inspire women to fight internalised misogyny and strongly encourage support between women.
The contents of this zine are not only responsible for the empowerment of those who have suffered at the cruel hands of domestic violence. The zine exists to charge the people around any victim; friends, family, even neighbours, and equip them with the appropriate information to speak up regularly against the issue and consider a strong stand through interference once in the know.
These are the spreads for my zine. My zine represents the brutal reality that women face. The horizontal and vertical cuts on different pages indicate that domestic violence is always behind hidden doors. The last page of my zine has national helpline numbers to not only help the victims of domestic violence but also encourage their friends and family to speak up and call for help.
