For the fourth Poster Monday spot of November we are featuring a poster from Emran Abdollahi. Emran is an Iranian graphic designer born and live in Isfahan, Esfahan. He studied at Art university of Birjand and his work has been awarded and recognized in various collections and competitions around the world, such as Golden Bee 14 competition where it was declared winner, Zero Waste International poster competition in Turkey, 1prize at the IV International Poster Festival Chorzow (plakatfest) in Poland- 2019 and many more.
The poster “Stop Acid Attack” tells us of a terrible situation in which countless women are found in the world; globally, there are approximately 1,500 acid attacks a year, but it is a crime that often goes unreported for fear of reprisal, according to numbers from the ActionAid organization. The greatest prevalence is in south Asian countries including India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, where acid remains inexpensive and freely available but it is beginning to be seen in some Latin American countries. The problem behind this is the thought that the woman is something that has to please the wishes of the man and perhaps this situation is even more harmful than the crime of throwing acid at women, that is, the crime is only one of the worst symptoms of a disease that consists of considering women and girls as an object lacking will and rights of its own.
