“There Are Two Monsters In My Story”: Publicis and France à l’Inceste Release Powerful Child Abuse Campaign

“There Are Two Monsters In My Story”: Publicis and France à l’Inceste  Release Powerful Child Abuse Campaign

Face à l’Inceste and Publicis Conseil are campaigning to change the law surrounding child sexual abuse and Incest.

In France, a child who is the victim of sexual abuse has to prove that they did not give consent.

Face à l’Inceste (formerly known as AIVI, the International Association of Victims of Incest) is the first French organisation against fighting incest. The campaign’s aim, supported by Publici Conseil,  is to “establish the assumption of the child’s absence of consent in laws surrounding incest”.

The campaign is linked to the ‘Duhamel affair’, a high profile story regarding a prominent political scientist who was accused of sexually abusing his stepson. These allegations sparked the hashtag #Metooinceste, with hundreds sharing their stories.

The animated film takes place from the perspective of a child, and focuses on this question of consent. It was created by Jungler, a French animation agency, using paintings by Brooklyn based painter Jackson Edward Joyce.

Isabelle Aubry, President of Face à l’Inceste said in a statement that, “it sends a symbolic message: children must protect themselves; they can’t rely on the law. This is absolutely appalling, and we have been fighting against this legal aberration for 20 years.”

Viewers are encouraged to sign a petition to change the law.
