COMMUNICATIONS NEWS: Refuge posters will show complicity in domestic violence

Refuge, the women's charity, is launching a national campaign that which will show that everybody is accountable for the high levels of domestic violence in the UK.

A nationwide poster campaign, called 'Don't Ignore It', and which follows on from Refuge's TV advertisements last year, will show images of domestic violence going on in public places and even in front of friends oblivious to what is happening.

"The posters act as a metaphor for the way in which society continues to hide, excuse and ignore the issue of domestic violence," said Sandra Horley, chief executive at Refuge. "By recognising it is a crime and that we're all accountable for the extent of the problem, people will bring about the change in attitude that we so desperately need."
