Silent Consent - Typographic Artworks by Miklós Kiss

Hungarian graphic designer and visual artist Miklós Kiss created this powerful series of artworks to raise awareness for the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women held on November 25th.

“Many women are discriminated and abused because of their gender. The violent acts committed against them can be verbal, emotion, physical, sexual or economic and they are much more common than expected — and it happens more often than we know about it.

Many of the abuse cases are never reported to the authorities, and the media isn’t informed, remaining unnoticed. Many women feel like they do not have any other option but to silently endure. The silent yes is like an exclamation mark. A mark for all those women who have been deprived of their rights of making their own choices. For those who have been living their lives under obligation and suppression because nobody has ever shown them how to say no. This silent consent becomes a painful everyday routine and it’s hiding on their lips, dishonest and invisible.”
