Marking the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, celebrated on November 25th, the Portuguese Association for Victim Support presents a new awareness campaign. This campaign was developed by the creative agency Mustard, in collaboration with Clara Amarela and Digital Azul. The campaign warns of the consequences of ignoring signs, such as verbal violence, control and distrust, both on the part of the victim and the neighbors and other close people.
See domestic violence with your ears. For many victims it all starts with words. If you hear them, don't ignore them.
