Violence against women has been portrayed (or rather shoved down our throats) for way to long now; whether it be through advertising, television, movies or print. This slide show is a pathetic and disgusting abuse of the way in which women are perceived. I can’t stop photos like this or images on the television or movie screen from appearing. So what should I do? How about I make my own.
In the next few weeks, I am working on a project with several wonderful women (and men) throughout the East Coast to counter this problem with our own photos. Our goal is to start showing more photos of women protecting themselves, their children and each other. I encourage you to send me your photos at firstname.lastname@example.org
