One Billion Rising to demand an end to violence against women

(Warning: The pictures in this post are disturbing, and I would say that they should not be viewed by children, except that, the problem is children are seeing this kind of thing. You should know.)
This international event is happening tomorrow. It’s called One Billion Rising, intended to demand an end to violence against women.


How does media contribute to violence against women? So many, many ways.


How about dead women to sell fashion?

How about gang rape to sell fashion to teens?

Rape jokes to sell vodka?

How about a PETA ad that purports to be about animal welfare? The woman is wearing a neck brace and is battered because her boyfriend went vegan and is now highly sexually potent, and apparently can’t control himself. So she is badly injured. But you’ll notice in the very last clip, the smirk. She secretly likes being beaten up. That’s a good message for kids.
