Act NOW

act Women's Aid has today launched 'act', "a national domestic violence awareness campaign to ask everyone to ‘act until women and children are safe’– that is - admit domestic abuse is a problem, call it by its name and talk to someone about it". The campaign uses head and shoulder portraits of famous female faces, made up to show the physical effects of domestic violence. Whilst I wish the campaign every success, and whilst I understand that Women's Aid works specifically to end violence against women and children, it would have been nice if it had mentioned that domestic violence is also suffered by many men.
