Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence: Punching bag

It's not acceptable to treat a woman like one. Most men agree, but few speak out. Please, be heard. A man's voice is an effective way to change demeaning societal attitudes towards women.

It's so overdone, I really don't know where to start!!! I've seen this visual trick like 10 times in recent years... I prefer the other one with the piece of meat, it's more dirty, shocking and spectacular...

Don't like it. Some way the shot looks funny and I think shouldn't happen to deliver this message.

Nooooooooo .....the ad aint good at all! Instead I think the guys may continue doing it given that the punchbag doesn't feel pain and wont defend itself

I think it's a great ad. It's a picture that speaks the proverbial thousand words, showing a domestic abuser's viewpoint as taken to its logical conclusion. Who knows, perhaps it might be persuasive to women who think they "deserve" to be trreated like that.
