Sticker Therapy

Brussels, Belgium

Note the sicker near the top and slightly to the right of center: Princess Leia with a caption that reads “Fight Like a Girl.” I saw various versions of this all over Brussels and Antwerp. Looking it up I see it’s an umbrella organisation helping women ‘fight’ a range of issues, mostly diseases, but also causes like sexual assault and domestic abuse.

  1. Yes, I see the sticker you’re referring to. It’s a great example of how the image of Princess Leia has been used to promote gender equality and women’s empowerment.

  2. I’d not heard about this so, of course, Google to the rescue: “Fight Like a Girl” is a country song about female empowerment. The song was inspired by the events of #SaladGate in 2015, when a country radio consultant said that women didn’t deserve a lot of airplay on country radio, because they were the tomatoes and garnish of the country music salad.
