ActionAid is the independent international organization committed to fighting the causes of poverty and injustice. It bases its work on respect for human rights and acts together with the most marginalized communities through long-term development programs in Italy, Asia, Africa and Latin America.
Denounce the absence of integrated policies.
Women emerging from violence have the right to have every opportunity to take back their lives.
To protect their path to emancipation, the state should provide housing, employment, financial, legal and management support for any care burdens through the adoption of integrated policies.
But all this is not happening.
That is why ActionAid asked Caffeina to develop an awareness campaign targeting both politicians and citizens, involving ambassador Claudia Gerini.
The lack of integrated policies to support women emerging from violence risks freezing the path to asserting their freedom.
To protest the absence of such policies, we therefore decided to show the politicians themselves and the public a frozen woman: an ice statue that metaphorically represents all women who have freed themselves from violence but are frozen by politics.
The woman of ice.
In Rome, a city of art but also of politics, Claudia Gerini unveiled the ice statue representing a woman emerging from violence: head held high, courageous gaze, step leaning forward into the future.
The ambassador invited people to sign ActionAid’s petition asking Italian politicians to “melt the ice” with appropriate integrated policies.
The campaign included a TV video starring Claudia Gerini, a social content plan, and an activation with influencers who lent their voices to the women of the Anti-Violence Centers, telling their stories.
Raise awareness of politicians and citizens and collect signatures for ActionAid’s petition.
