Ladies and gentlemen, I really think that you’ll be shocked when we tell you that (according to the statistics, provided by the World Health Organization), 1 in 3 women worldwide will experience physical or sexual violence in their lifetime, usually from a male partner.
This is probably one of the most powerful videos for the last year and I really think that it’s a must-see for every single person. The name of this video is #DearDaddy. #DearDaddy is a five-minute-long film that takes viewers on a woman’s journey through her life’s relationships with men, beginning from life in the womb.
The woman in this video is talking to her father, warning him about the violence she will inevitably face — and how he may have, unknowingly, helped to perpetuate the never-ending cycle of and abuse and excuses.
“I will be born a girl which means by the time I am 14, the boys in my class would have called me a w***e, a b***h, a c**t, and many other things. It’s just for fun of course, something boys do. So you won’t worry and I understand that. Perhaps you did the same when you were young, I’m sure you didn’t mean anything by it. Still, some of the other people won’t get the joke.”
And, at the end, she’s is grown-up and she has experienced an abusive relationship. She reveals her final plea to her own father. This video contains graphic language and may not be suitable for all viewers.
