Moroccan state TV is being bombarded by activists after airing a tutorial showing women how to cover up bruises from domestic abuse. According to the Huffington Post, “Sabahiyat,” a show that airs on the state’s Channel 2M, aired a segment on Nov. 23 couple of days before the International for Elimination of Violence Against Women.
Domestic Violence affects millions of women and children all over the World and the truth cannot be long hidden. We need to be respected and we must speak up.
Change.org is taking action and it is a great opportunity for all of us to stand up for women rights. “Do not cover domestic violence with makeup, condemn the aggressor!”
