Domestic Violence Awareness in Art

Domestic Violence

I recently discovered the talented Sherrie Thai, an artist who uses her amazing talents to help promote causes that are important to her. I am honored to share a piece of hers called “Trapped” which she has used to raise awareness about Domestic Violence:

Trapped by Sherrie Thai “I’m a strong believer that everyone has a gift enabling them to make a positive difference or change a view. Mine happens to be art.” ~ Sherrie Thai

Q & A with Sherrie Thai of Shaire Productions

  1. What inspired or motivated to you to create “Trapped” and raise awareness about domestic violence?
    “Trapped” was created for a local event benefiting a women’s shelter and I saw it as a good opportunity to bring awareness to an cause that interested me. There have been women in my life who have gone through domestic, emotional and verbal abuse. In some cases, domestic violence seems to get swept under the rug as it’s deemed a sensitive and private topic. Unfortunately, there are gender issues and stereotypes that still exist, excusing crass behavior towards women.
  2. What message are you trying to share through this piece?
    This piece is about the emotional effects of domestic violence. The outer scars can fade, but there’s still a fear, sadness and vulnerability that exists. Many DV images I’ve come across deals with the physical scars and while they are dramatic imagery, I wanted to explore the pain that exists beyond that.
  3. Can you tell us about the fundraiser/charity event for the local DV shelter that this piece was featured at?
    Sure, “Trapped” was part of the “Yearning to Breathe Free” community event, held at USF for “La Casa de Las Madres”, a local San Francisco DV shelter.
  4. What is your artistic background and experience?
    I studied Graphic Design and while it is my main bread-and-butter job, my main passion is in Illustration and the Fine Arts. Not a moment goes by that I’m not creating, thinking or researching for a new piece. My online shops and entities gives me the freedom to explore that creativity in new media and styles. I always have a camera and sketchbook by my side, as there’s so much inspiration out there.
  5. Do you have any future goals to focus on Domestic Violence or other causes in your art?
    When I have the time and opportunity, I try to create pieces that I feel strongly about, whether it’s DV, genocide, natural disasters, etc. I’m a strong believer that everyone has a gift enabling them to make a positive difference or change a view. Mine happens to be art.

Here at the Purple Reign Campaign, we encourage people of all backgrounds to be a hero and speak out against abuse. You don’t have to put on a costume and hits the streets to ‘fight crime’. Everyone has their own unique talents and abilities and we love to see people using them to make a difference in their community whether it is through art, music, poetry, culinary talents, or even offering service and labor.
If you know someone who is making a difference in their community in a creative effort please let us know by sending an email to PurpleReignCampaign@gmail.com.

Kitty Genovese

triumph

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing”

Catherine Susan “Kitty” Genovese (July 7, 1935 – March 13, 1964) was 28 years old when she was stabbed to death near home in Queens, New York on March 13, 1964.  Her story is not directly related to domestic violence. But it is a low point in American history that reminds us why ‘Everyday Heroes’ are needed.

In the few moments it took Kitty to walk from her parked car towards towards her apartment door Winston Moseley attacked her.  He stabbed her and she cried out for help.  The he raped her as she lay dying from her stab wounds. His last offense towards her was stealing the cash out of her wallet before fleeing the scene.

Neighbors heard her cries for help but no one came to her rescue. Later some told the police they assumed the commotion was a lover’s quarrel and not their place to get involved.  Even if it had been a case of domestic violence, her life could have been saved if someone had responded sooner.  This is a good example, and by ‘good’ I mean ‘terrible’ of when people remain bystanders while innocent people are hurt. When my abuser attacked me I screamed for help and no one came to my rescue either – although I know they heard my cries through the thin condo walls.

Later, Winston Moseley was charged, found guilty, and sentenced to life in prison but not before he could hurt and rape more victims. He could have been behind bars much sooner with less victims if only someone had the courage to stand up for Kitty instead of blocking out her cries.

“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” Evil may have triumphed that day but Kitty’s memory is still honored. In fact, it has sparked a movement of people who choose to go the extra step and proactively seek to prevent crime.  On March 13, 2012 The Rain City Superheroes will dedicate their evening crime patrol on the streets of Seattle to the memory of Kitty Genovese.

It does not matter if you are a Real Life Superhero, a business man, or a single mom – anyone can be an Everyday Hero.  Step up by speaking out, responding to, and reporting crime.

How Domestic Abuse Has Risen Worldwide Since Coronavirus

Abuse

The Coronavirus pandemic has spread across the world, and people are forced to stay indoors to protect themselves, their loved ones and also contribute to putting an end to this pandemic. However, this has lead to another ceasefire in the world, which is domestic abuse and violence. Amid the pandemic, many countries around the globe have registered cases for an increase in domestic violence.

Domestic violence is already a deadly epidemic, sparing no country or city. The increase in the need to stay indoors has spiked the rate of household violence due to various issues like money, relationship, security and health. According to certain reports, one in three women was expected to face domestic abuse on a daily basis, prior to the pandemic. However, this number has drastically increased since the onset of the pandemic. It gets especially risky for the informal workers like the doctors, nurses, etc., who have to face the world in urban, deserted or rural areas, under the lockdown.

Drastic consequences

Data collected from various countries have shown a significant increase in cases of domestic violence. For example, the Middle East and North Africa, where the laws for protecting women and their sanity is minimal to nil. Analysis conducted by the UN Women also signaled and warned the world about gender-based violence on women, during the pandemic that will exacerbate the pre-existing risks and vulnerabilities on women.

In countries like Mexico and Brazil, the calls to hotlines regarding domestic abuse have seen a surge, while in other countries like Chile and Bolivia, it has likely reduced. This reduction may be due to the inability or the resistance of women to formally make a complaint.

In China, the rates have increased to three times, than what it was prior to the pandemic.

Drastic

Double Pandemic

The domestic abuse of women, children and the LGBT+ community has been a global pandemic, long before the onset of the Coronavirus.

According to some data collected by the UN, over 243 million women and girls have been subjected to abuse either emotionally or sexually in the last twelve months. During this time, when there is an increase in the rate of unemployment, a growing number of sick and deceased and the scarcity of resources and medical help have exacerbated the crisis. Abusers are under high pressures due to the reasons as mentioned earlier, along with alcohol or drug abuse, which leads to the victims stuck in violent and abusive environments without access to help, friend or family. Experts call this a ticking time bomb or an invisible pandemic.

Double Pandemic

Ability to access help

Before the pandemic, almost 40% of the women and children facing domestic abuse, reached out for help. But today, movement restrictions, quarantine and self-isolation have further decreased the numbers allowing the victims in the traps of the abusers with almost no support from family or friends. Despite the constraints, many NGO’s and government bodies are working around the clock in various countries to help these victims and get them out of this miserable situation, safe and sound.
