For Arab Women’s Day on February 1st, 2022, M.A.L.I. (Mouvement Alternatif pour les Libertés Individuelles) pursued its fight against sexual violence, launching a creative campaign that champions equality in sexual rights for girls and women across the MENA region. Together with TBWA\RAAD, they released “The Macabre Dictionary of Virginity Testing”, a dictionary beautifully illustrated in a children’s book style to challenge controversial issues – which are far from childish topics.
