Support for women victims of violence via digital chat

Ceci n'est pas un message d'amour, a new awareness campaign from En avant toute(s)

The association fighting for equality and an end to sexist and sexual violence En avant toute(s), has teamed up with production studio MenuXL to launch the campaign "Ceci n'est pas un message d'amour" directed by Edith Chapin and co-written with Morgane Ortin.

The subject is a vital one: young women are over-represented among victims of domestic violence. The phenomenon affects 1 in 7 young people, compared with 1 in 10 women of all ages (ENVEFF survey). "With pop culture, young people are imbued with the idea that love must be a crazy, almost destructive passion. This film denounces the romanticization of these mechanisms, particularly jealousy, which they will see as proof of love. It's vital to get this message across to them." Ynaée Benaben, director and co-founder of En avant toute(s).

The film encourages mobilization via an appeal for generosity on the En avant toute(s) website to fight for an end to domestic violence. Indeed, while it is vital to encourage victims of violence to speak out, this cannot happen without support for the structures that listen to and accompany them, as En avant toute(s) does via its Commentonsaime.fr chat.

Since the chat's creation, the association has recorded more than 19,900 chats and accompanies a growing number of minors reporting sexist and sexual and/or intra-family violence. Ynaée Benaben, director and co-founder of the association En avant toute(s), stresses the importance of awareness campaigns representing young women, asserting:"We know today that young women find it extremely difficult to find themselves in representations of women who are victims of domestic violence. It's essential to have campaigns that reflect them, so that they can identify with them, to stem the tide of this phenomenon, which still affects 1 in 7 young people under 25."
