Photographer Attacked for Her Photographs of Domestic Violence | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

[Trigger Warning: This post contains a description and photos of physical assault that may potentially be triggering for survivors of such abuse.]


...Since it was published, Lewkowicz’s project has received negative attention because many commenters feel that Lewkowicz should have tried to stop the abuse rather than standing by and documenting the incident on her camera.  Lewkowicz actually did call 911 (and includes images of their response in her photo essay as well), but for many this was not enough.  Even Maggie was attacked by commenters for allowing the abuse to happen, for staying with Shane, and for not fighting back.  As one commenter states, “She is not a victim.  She is the perpetrator.”  But as Jina Moore notes in her article on Salon.com, the only person who isn’t blamed in these comments is the man committing the violence.

Astonishing, but not surprising. *sigh*

People are afraid to have to do something about the issue. It's much easier to attack the messenger.

It's as easy to romanticize the past as it is to demonize it; instead, let's learn from it. More than living simply, more than living 'green', thrifty grandmas knew the importance of the 'economics' in Home Economics. The history of home ec, lessons in thrift, practical tips and ideas from the past focused on sustainability for families and out planet. Companion to http://www.thingsyourgrandmotherknew.com/
