THIS DOES GOD FOR YOU
This is a fictional (propaganda) campaign on behalf of the Roman Catholic Church (RKK in Dutch), during a fictional epidemic. It's an indictment of society against the growing sexualisation and the observation that women increasingly differ from the traditional role that was ever approved by the Church, by God.
This is what has happened:
The epidemic strikes all women aged fifteen and older and causes them to have menstruation problems, like extreme bleedings, also known as menorrhagia.
This has a great impact on the health of the women,
like (sanitary) hygiene and not being able to have sex.
The standard menstruation remedies run out, uteri must be removed, doctors are baffled, don't know what to do and how to help. Some women die of it and the fear among society is great.
At it's peak posters will appear in the streetscape with the words: "THIS DOES GOD FOR YOU" (as the poster on the left says), followed up by five posters with solution tips from the RKK. By following these tips everyone will be all right.
1. This epidemic is God's punishment to the whole society, where he punishes the women some more by making them sick and useless.
2. Because God likes the people to have a good and blessed life, the RKK offers a treatment in exchange
