Hi girls so this week for domestic violence awareness I wanted to share a cool ad that I think you will all recognize. A couple of weeks ago everyone was obsessing over what color they saw a particular dress to be, well now The Salvation Army in South Africa has turned it into a powerful ad for domestic violence awareness, and posted it on their twitter page.
“The only illusion is if you think it’s her choice,” the image reads. “One in 6 women are victims of abuse. Stop abuse against women.”
This clever use of advertising for such an important cause reminded me just how large of an issue domestic violence is an how many people it effects all over the world. So just remember anyway that you help matters, and if you want to get involved there are many opportunities on campus and off campus!
