Les princesses Disney à la rescousse des droits des femmes

Publié le par

Les Roses ! Parfois, les princesses Disney troquent leurs jolies robes et deviennent des filles, des femmes, comme vous et nous. Elles ont les mêmes considérations que nous, les mêmes problèmes du quotidien.

Moment charmant du mois qu’on appelle règles, mais aussi contraception, avortement…Ce genre de problème ne devrait pas être tabou et les droits d’accès à des soins médicaux, à une bonne couverture santé ne devraient pas être piétinés.

C’est pour cela qu’aux Etats-Unis, l’illustratrice Maritza Lugo et l’auteure Danielle Sepulveres ont choisi les princesses Disney pour dénoncer les risques des nouvelles mesures prises par le gouvernement Trump depuis son arrivée au pouvoir. Avant d’être des princesses, Pocahontas, Cendrillon, Mulan ou Jasmine sont des femmes, et il est important de le rappeler. Grâce à elles, Maritza Lugo et Danielle Sepulveres espèrent sensibiliser l’opinion sur le danger que représentent les nouvelles mesures. Chaque illustration montre ce qui pourrait se passer si toutes ces mesures étaient adoptées.

Que se passerait-il pour nos princesses Disney avec ces lois ?

Ainsi, Belle se voit retirer le droit d’obtenir une pilule de contraception, Jasmine et Aladdin apprennent qu’ils vont devoir payer les funérailles de leur bébé mort-né, Tiana ne peut plus se faire vacciner, et Pocahontas, considérée comme immigrée, perd une partie de ses droits.

In our final rendition of Disney Princesses VS. the GOP, we remember that last year we had Tiana getting her HPV vaccine in part to promote Cervical Cancer Awareness month. And to combat some of the fallacies that perpetuate about the vaccine itself, which include the idea that only girls should get it, it promotes sexual behavior, or that it’s ineffective. But this year there’s an even bigger issue at hand. And that’s Trump’s overall attitude towards vaccines. His insistence that vaccines cause autism has not waned, in spite of all scientific evidence to the contrary. Trump’s most recent claim is that there will be a better replacement to ACA which will be less expensive and available to everyone. Details of such a wonderful concept? There are none except the phrase that Americans will be “beautifully covered.” This sounds like what Beyoncé would describe as a « sweet dream or a beautiful nightmare » and we’re guessing it’s not the sweet dream. #disney #princesses #obamacare #tiana #standwithpp #aca #disneyprincess #vaccines #illustration #artwork #princessandthefrog #blacklivesmatter

The animated Pocahontas film without a doubt presents an erroneous romanticized view of colonialism, kidnapping and sexual appropriation. And last summer Donald Trump kept condescendingly referring to Elizabeth Warren as Pocahontas because the Republicans demanded proof of her claimed Native American heritage. It’s about time we talked about Native Americans and how they could be affected under a Trump presidency. All of Trump’s talk about immigrants and who belongs in this country would be comical if it wasn’t so tragic considering blemishes on American history like the Indian Removal Act of 1830. Beyond the troubling issue of what the future holds for the pipeline is healthcare overall for Native American groups. Did you know that they are not allocated the same level of federal health care as other people? But it’s likely to expect that Trump will parade into this unique area of healthcare like John Smith, plundering and damaging all the way through. After all, records indicate that John Smith described pre-teen Pocahontas as “nubile and sexy” which sounds like the 17th century version of “grab them by the pussy.” Words by the brilliant @daniellesep 🙌🏽💻 #standwithpp #dapl #illustration #disneyprincess #disney #pocahontas #fuckdonaldtrump #artwork #art #socialjustice #aca #obamacare

Belle was super happy to get birth control. As someone who was dependent on it, finding out she was denied her refill will only make Belle’s life a little harder. Birth control helps women in so many ways and it isn’t just for preventing pregnancy. Representative Kirsten Gillibrand was working hard to protect birth control while the GOP was trying to overturn #ACA. Slate published an article on this yesterday. The Senate voted to leave 55 million women without affordable birth control. No-copay birth control was a hallmark of ACA, allowing 55 million women to have more control over their bodies. Now insurance companies would no longer be required to cover contraceptives, and pregnancy would be considered a “pre-existing condition.” #standwithpp #plannedparenthood #beautyandthebeast #disney #disneyprincesses #illustration #socialjustice #maritzalugoart #artwork #belle #fucktrump

Previously, we saw Aladdin & Jasmine happy & ready to start their family. This year, however, it’s taken a dark tone. Why? Because Trump just nominated former U.S. Senator from Indiana Dan Coats for Director of National Intelligence and he’s just one of many Republicans who back strenuous measures against Planned Parenthood and restricting a women’s right to choose. Indiana is a state along with Louisiana and Texas that have been trying to sign into law a mandate that would essentially force women to provide funeral services for aborted tissue and miscarriages. So today’s illustration has to do with family planning and how we’re afraid it could be affected by this new administration, based on people like Mike Pence, Dan Coats, and honestly the entirety of the Texas GOP. Also considering that it’s Jasmine and Aladdin looking for some family planning? Here’s hoping they don’t have to deal with Trump’s Muslim registry first. . .
