Just noted by Antonia Z @twitter: UK bans domestic violence ad by Keira Knightley – for showing woman abuse! Antonia has a post at Broadsides in which she says, in part:
Real women are getting beaten up — and killed — by their partners all the time but the media don’t treat it as the epidemic of violence it is.
Fictional women get assaulted by their partners and the media make money off that.
But when a real woman plays a fictional woman getting beaten up to help real women who get beaten up all the time, well, kick that off the air because it might upset somebody.
