Poster Monday: Congo the Worst Place to be a Woman
The second Poster Monday spot of the day belongs to Ophelia Maame Nyarko Acquah from Ghana for her poster entitled Congo the Worst Place to be a Woman. Maame Nyarko it’s a graduate of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) with a bachelor’s degree in Communication Design. Currently work as a Creative Consultant for an advertising agency in Ghana called Digicraft. “I love Design and I love making posters because it gives me the opportunity to express my true emotions about any subject matter without offending anybody or hiding anything” says Maame.
Maame, explains how she was inspired to make her poster: “I once read a newspaper article which stated that 16,000 women are raped every year in Congo. I became very afraid. Rape is such an emotional subject, it dehumanizing to the person being raped, their will is forcibly broken and their body, mind, spirit and soul is violated in horrible way that it takes only the grace of God to keep rape victims alive. (Because many of them kill themselves).”
