Laetitia Ky est une artiste étonnante qui utilise ses cheveux comme la matière principale de ses sculptures. Pour cela, elle se sert d’extensions, mais aussi de fil de fer et de laine. Grâce à son imagination débordante, elle s’est constituée une communauté de plus de 48.000 abonnés sur Instagram, qu’elle sensibilise au danger des armes, mais surtout au combat contre les violences faites aux femmes. En réponse au #metoo, elle a créé une sculpture représentant un homme qui soulève la jupe d’une femme. L’artiste de 21 ans a ajouté la légende suivante : "Les filles, rien ne justifie le viol, l’agression ou le harcèlement sexuel. Il n’y a pas de circonstances atténuantes pour les agresseurs(…), ne restez pas silencieuses". Un message fort liké plus de 11.000 fois sur Instagram, et qui lui a permis de se faire plus largement remarquer. La jeune femme vient d’ailleurs d’être nommée aux "African Talent Awards" dans la catégorie "meilleur créateur".
#metoo Thousands of women are raped every day in the world, but very few are able to talk about it, to complain or fight. Why? Because our "beautiful" society has the tendency to blame the victim almost every time. "" Oh but you should not have to gone out so late !!! "" "" "Ah, but you had a mini skirt" "," "why are you complaining if you agreed to have dinner with him?" "," "dont tell me that you were not trying to seduce him with all that makeup" "... Ladies ... NOTHING JUSTIFIES RAPE, SEXUAL ASSAULT OR HARASSMENT. Neither your clothing, your make-up, your relationship with the abuser (because even your husband doesnt have the right to force you to have sex if you dont want to, the concept of marital rape exists). There is no enabling circumstance for the abuser and you need to talk about it so that thing starts to change. Don't remain silent, dont let anyone tell you that you have some responsibility in this despicable act !!!! Speak out because you dont have to carry this burden alone, talk to help other women who are afraid, talk to start a revolution, talk to change things. You are not alone. Dont be discouraged even if your direct surrounding makes you feel guilty ... the weight can be difficult to sustain and the battle can be hard but it is worth it !!!!!! It's never too late to speak out. Even if the assault took place 20 years ago, a crime remains a crime so dare to speak out .... dont let anything pass... so those men learn to honor and respect women . Because yes, it is not for you to interfere with your liberty so that they are not tempted but for them to know how to control themself. I repeat it once more, dare to talk about it, dare to SNITCH ON YOUR PIGS... talk to the people around you so they can bring you all the support that the victims desperately need to start the process of healing... My DM is open to anyone who wants to talk. You are not alone.
