Stella McCartney has designed a virtual badge to help raise awareness about violence against women. The symbol, a white ribbon rendered in gold, will feature prominently in a two-week online campaign designed to coincide with the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women on November 25. The initiative will run on the Facebook and Twitter pages of McCartney and her fellow PPR brands, including Gucci and Puma. Social-media users can also share their support by downloading the badge and matching banners from Twibbon.

    This is pointless especially when fashion brands like Stella McCartney, although I love her designs and eco-consciousness, exploit women in their own ad campaigns showing them nude or partially nude in overtly sexual poses and on the runway sending them out half naked. A true campaign against the violence against women should also be against the exploitation of women in any arena whether it be in “fashion+art+media” or in society.
