Domestic violence is never a comfortable subject, which is all the more reason why it's such a brave and amazing move to have a campaign like this out there.

Funding for Women's Aid and their refuges, counselling, resettlement etc. have been hugely impacted by Government cuts, unfortunately like many other vital services.

I know this is going slightly off-subject, but there are so many different organisations that have had funding cut that are so desperately needed. It's overwhelming and it makes me feel powerless.
I'd really like to help as many causes as I can, but don't have the means (financial or otherwise) to do so.

Anyway, if Women's Aid get some much needed donations and support as a result of this, then that's a huge positive.

I wonder though how these billboards will effect young children, too young to understand domestic violence or read.

Thats a good question? Domestic violence in not gender, age, or status limited. Since it is for International Women's Day I can see why they chose a woman for the billboards
