Disney does domestic violence

When did he stop treating you like a princess?

An artist has created a series of images to raise awareness of domestic abuse, using beaten up Disney Princesses as the poster girls.

Jasmine, Ariel, Cinderella and Aurora are depicted with bloodied and battered faces in the project entitled ‘Happily Never After,’ by Saint Hoax.

You have got to see these amazing shots of your favourite Disney characters facing the horrors of the modern world.

"By portraying Disney princesses as victims of domestic violence, I'm proposing the idea that no girl/woman is safe from being emotionally/physically/sexually abused," Hoax explained to Huffington Post.

Any woman can get stuck in an abusive relationship. Here’s how to ensure you don’t become one of them.

"As a Middle Eastern artist, I always have the urge to voice out the injustice and inequality that takes place in my region.

"Victims of abuse are not alone and it's never too late for them to take a stand."

This isn’t the first time Hoax has used Disney imagery to bring a controversial image into the spotlight. After finding out that a close friend was raped by her father aged seven, Hoax made this disturbing yet powerful picture series called ‘Princest Diaries’ to highlight the fact that 46% of minors who are raped are victims of family members.

Groped on a bus and fighting back: Laura Bates, the founder of the Everyday Sexism Project, chats to feminist and author Tara Moss exclusively for Cosmo.

The harrowing shots of characters all young girls grew up with really hammer home the fact that this kind of abuse can happen to absolutely anyone - even girls you perceive as perfect.
