The musical theme "It is not normal and it is not ok", composed and performed by Esther Hernández, is an invitation to act against gender violence.
Caracas, June 1, 2023.- The video of the winning theme of the #HablemosDeFrente contest, organized by UNICEF Venezuela as an effort to raise awareness about how harmful violence against girls, adolescents, and women is, was presented this Wednesday, May 31.
The musical theme "It is not normal and it is not ok", composed and performed by Esther Hernández, is a piece that speaks to girls, adolescents, and women in their own language to question the social conventions that prevent the fight against gender violence.
The launch of the video of the winning song was carried out within the framework of a discussion on gender violence, in which Marta Rodríguez, a specialist in Child Protection from UNICEF Venezuela, and Daniela Hinojosa, director of the NGO Tinta Violeta, participated. The event, held at Cines Unidos de Los Dos Caminos, in Caracas, was moderated by the urban music performer Afreeka.
Adolescents and young people between the ages of 15 and 24 from all over the country participated in the #HablemosDeFrente contest, they were asked to compose a rap or freestyle with a positive message that would invite reflection on the importance of preventing gender-based violence.
The participants had to record a 60-second video interpreting a song of their own, which had to include at least 6 words alluding to the prevention of gender violence, from a group of 25 published on the website hablemosdefrente.org. Dozens of adolescents and young people from various states of Venezuela sent their musical themes, among which the piece by Esther Hernández was selected.
The video of the winning theme is available on the UNICEF Venezuela YouTube channel.
