#StripForJackie Campaign Gains Momentum

|

As part of the growing scandal surrounding Caretaker Youth and Sports Minister Faisal Karam’s call for an investigation over Lebanese Olympian Jackie Chamoun’s past photoshoot, Lebanese netizens have already come up with a creative way to support Jackie: Stripping.

The #StripForJackie campaign has just started and already features 10 models, men and women, who have stripped featuring a “I am Not Naked/I am a [Enter Job description]” tagline. Photographers Tarek Moukaddem and Carl Halal are the men behind the lenses (and in front of it) and they have called for everyone to join by sending them a message and booking an appointment.

Why are they doing this? Here’s the page’s description:

“Some women are beaten or killed, others are raped, and the media shifts their attention to a confident talented beautiful woman who represents her country at the Olympic games. This is about telling our “peers” to set their priorities straight. This is to fight censorship. This is for freedom.”

This campaign, incidentally, shares a lot of similarities with an Avaaz petition calling on the government to drop the investigation, claiming that “

“Their outrage proves one thing: that our government believes the bodies of women are public property — despite not doing anything to protect them. Let’s challenge that disgrace right now.”

And once again, the issue of the lack of law against domestic violence came up:

“It’s unbelievable that the government was able to mobilise resources and react on the very same day to this non-event when the lives of thousands of other Lebanese women are at risk thanks to the lack of movement on violence against women legislation. Just last week a teacher was beaten to death by her husband right in front of her two children!”

Do not Forget Roula Yaccoub. Do not Forget Manal Assi.

Want to participate in the #StripForJackie campaign? All you have to do is send them a message.
