Woman Takes a Selfie Every Day to Document the Worst Year of Her Life …

1 in 4 #women will experience a form of domestic violence in their lifetimes.
Whether it’s physical or emotional, abusers leave their victims feeling helpless, ashamed and worthless. To raise awareness, a Serbian ad agency created a PSA back in 2013 called “One photo a day in the worst year of my life.” In it, a #woman takes a photo every day for a year to document the abuse she has endured.
The woman’s face looks fine at first, but as time goes on, bruises and black #eyes appear on her face and neck. At the end, she holds a sign that reads “Help me, I don’t know if i will be here tomorrow.” And it’s true — according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, one third of all female homicide victims died at the hands of their partners.
Although this video went viral a year ago, the message still resonates for this National Domestic Abuse Awareness Month. It’s an epidemic and it shouldn’t be swept under the rug any longer.
