In the Ashfield constituency in which I stood at the general election, Gloria De Piero MP – Shadow Minister for Women & Equalities – had two posters in her office window which presented a picture of only men being perpetrators of domestic violence, only women being victims. One poster advertised the services of a helpline, and had a crude drawing of a cowering woman in a cage. We called the helpline, and discovered the service was for female victims only.
In the same window were two posters for breast cancer, none for prostate cancer. Roughly as many men die from prostate cancer as women die from breast cancer in the UK.
Our blog piece on the matter, along with links to the four posters, is here. GDP won two ‘Lying Feminist of the Month’ awards, one for the lying narrative about domestic violence. That award certificate is here.
