Violence against women cannot reign

Agency: Calix Advertising


In order to raise awareness on domestic violence, the agency decided to tell the story of Leopoldina, a XIX century, Austrian princess who was married to the acclaimed Brazilian emperor D. Pedro I, a notorious woman abuser. Leopoldina was repeatedly beaten up by D. Pedro during the period she stayed married to him. The court and the population, in general, knew about the beatings but did nothing to save the princess. She ended up dying of depression in a very early age probably because of sheer sadness. As we can conclude, abusing woman dates back to a long time and it is, unfortunately, still a common crime today in Brazil. We are helping Maria Leopoldina to denounce her husband even after she died. And inspiring all other women who have no courage or feel intimidated for any reason. The campaign was aired on March 8th, International Women's Day.
