“Butterflies Wake” Novel Packs a Punch Without Chipping a Nail

 

Coming June 2014!

Written by: Arlene Lagos

The highly-anticipated novel, “Butterflies Wake” launches this June, and may very well find its way to the bestseller list before the end of the summer. The novel is about an underground female mafia that rights the wrongs of an unjust society.

Along with the book, I have put together a photo campaign that depicts vigilante women in positions of power, in an effort to go up against the mainstream depictions of women as victims of a domestically violent and rape-excused culture.

The messages the photos send are very clear, “We are not afraid” and “You are not alone”. For a fiction novel it seems to hit home, with many women often asking me, is it real? If so, can I join?

While my usual reply is that it’s just a tongue-in-cheek fiction novel, it does raise the question about whether or not its time for women to become more vigilant in their own protection against a culture that excuses such violence towards them.

Butterfly Project: Part II

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Violence against women has been portrayed (or rather shoved down our throats) for way to long now; whether it be through advertising, television, movies or print. This slide show is a pathetic and disgusting abuse of the way in which women are perceived. I can’t stop photos like this or images on the television or movie screen from appearing. So what should I do? How about I make my own.

In the next few weeks, I am working on a project with several wonderful women (and men) throughout the East Coast to counter this problem with our own photos. Our goal is to start showing more photos of women protecting themselves, their children and each other. I encourage you to send me your photos at butterflieswake@gmail.com
