International Women's Day

To coincide with International Women's Day, seven short films by Yorkshire artist Beverley Addy inspired by abusive relationships will be played in pubs, hairdressers, shops and other public places around Huddersfield and beyond from today. The films, called Lives, will contain harrowing images of abuse against women and are intended to stimulate debate about domestic violence. For more details, see this article in The Guardian and the films' Facebook page. I've not seen the films, but here is the trailer, which gives an impression of what they will be like:

    1. Whatever.

      I suspect that if you were the victim of domestic violence then you might not find the subject so uninteresting.

    1. If you are referring to my deletion of a comment, I did that because it was at best nonsensical and at worst abusive.

      You clearly have a problem with the mention of domestic violence against women. I suspect that this is because you subscribe to the erroneous theory that there is a grand conspiracy against men. If so, then please post your nonsense elsewhere.

      And before you say it, yes I am fully aware that men are the victims of domestic violence as well, as I have stated here many times previously.

  3. good stuff, john. (i mean the post - no idea what the comments are about and no wish to). dv (as you keep saying) is all too real and hideous whether the object is male or female.
