Romanian NGO Raises Awareness To The Other Pandemic, As Masks Come Off Nationwide.

March 8th, International Women’s Day, coincidentally also marked the end of the official state of alert in Romania. As the number of COVID-19 cases is decreasing, the authorities decided to lift a series of restrictions, including the obligation to wear masks. However, some masks remain. Hundreds of thousands of Romanian women will still have their nose and mouth covered, as the other pandemic is not gone, yet.

Hundreds of thousands of Romanian women will still have their nose and mouth covered. Either by the palm of an abusing partner or by their own palm, as they contemplate in anguish the dire realities of the other pandemic. The domestic violence pandemic will sadly continue in various forms, from physical abuse to psychological abuse, from economical abuse to cybernetic abuse, from social abuse to sexual or spiritual abuse.

We have launched the “Some masks remain.” campaign toraise awarenessto the domestic abuse pandemic, but also attract vital donations that can help ANAIS Association, the leading NGO supporting the fight against domestic violence, gather resources to offer victims legal and psychological counselling.

The campaign is based on real stories from women helped by ANAIS. We recreated several situations with actors and chose the unified perspective of a phone screen for extra authenticity. Thus, the campaign includes a spot in vertical storytelling format, but also a series of 5 key visuals meant to educate the public about the various forms of domestic violence.

From publishing intimate content without consent, to prohibiting meetings with friends. From embezzling family income to forbidding access to religious practice or controlling a partner on the pretext of jealousy.
