HER. A Longboard Film Denouncing Violence Against Women.

Wednesday, November 27, 2019

November 25, was International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.

Longboarder and filmer, Achel Machin, decided to create this powerful video to illustrate an important point. Violence against women is much more common than you imagine.

According to the WHO, 1 woman out of 3 has experienced physical and/or sexual violence in their lifetime.  

And that excludes more insidious forms of violence such as gender discrimination or social expectations about how women should look and act.

"I believe that sometimes we turn a blind eye to this because it is easier to hang on to a stereotype than to accept a hard and scary reality. So today, I want to speak up to say that we have to stop pretending this problem doesn’t exist and talk about it."
