Fashion Creators Fight Today Against Violence

According to the United Nations Non. 25th is the “International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women”.  2Lei in Second Life is a collaborative project between some groups in Second Life, which began in 2010 with the aim to raise awareness and disseminate events related to the “International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women".Virtual artists, gallery owners, musicians and the cultural figures of Second Life are invited to share the common message of solidarity to the women via their particular Art.For the fourth year in a row, a committee of volunteers has chosen to devote time, energy and ideas together to realize projects and activities to say "No to violence against women in the world."
Art and Fashion are siblings and it is great that fashions designers take part of the 2Lei event which is already tradition in Second Life. I blogged already about the exhibition "Duets in Art" and today the event will be dedicated to art and fashion:

1.30 PM SLT : "Don’t let him destroy you" Photo Contest

Elettra Gausman, owner of Orage Creations invited to a photo contest. The works are shared in a Flickr Group and the best images will be honoured today. As far as I knew the contributors the works mainly came from models and fashion bloggers. This high quality and strength of the works I often miss with "art" photographers.

Taken by BM Serenity. I choose this because I find it a very dangerous trend that the media change violence against women to a part of "normal" sexuality. We should stand up against that! Violence never can be good and normality.

Heartbreaking image by Locuala Madruga. We never should forget that we are role models for our daughters!
Have a look too at this work by Anna Sapphire, which I could not share. Victims often feel ashamed and are not able to share their matyrdom.
