Shepard Fairey made a really pretty butterfly to fight sexual violence.

(click image, via) It's got peace signs. So peaceful. It's initially for an Amnesty International campaign on sexual and reproductive rights in Nicaragua, but "will be appearing soon all over the world." You can make one, too! Go here. Fight the (male) power—with fluttering prettiness! Related: Here's a round-up of Amnesty domestic violence awareness ads.

i think you meant to say, "shepard fairey found this cool butterfly image somewhere, ran it through streamline (er... live trace in illustrator) and gussied it up a bit and called it his own"

that guy has not done an original piece of art, ever.

Yes, that is——retroactively speaking——what I meant to say.

Is it meant to be a vagina? Because that's what I see.

That big ol scary butterfly is sure to send Nicaraguan sexual predators running for the hills! Good "work" "Fairy".

He should look at this the next time he's tempted to berate his wife in public.
