A woman is assaulted every two minutes in Brazil, according to the Fórum Brasileiro de Segurança Pública (Brazilian Public Safety Forum), or FBSP. To stimulate the movement to Combat Violence Against Women, the Fala Mulher Association and a RedeTV! joined forces on an audacious project: every 2 minutes, to interrupt broadcast transmission with the image of a woman being assaulted. More than just a campaign, “2breakthesilence” is a visceral portrait of this reality, personifying the coldness of these alarming statistics and incentivizing reports of the assaults via the “Lei Maria da Penha” (Federal Law for the Prevention of Domestic and Family Violence Against Women).
