Rach Clemente: The post has been removed!

Violence against women is a very real issue. Hundreds of millions of people around the world deal with this daily and it is a major social ill. Pictures like this https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=401286333293593&set=a.320972894658271.77498.320968344658726&type=1&theater
constitute hate speech and incite violence against women. Facebook doesn't allow posts that incite hatred of other groups, tell facebook that violence against women and misogyny is not ok either!

For a bit of irony I ask that you share this petition any way you can including on your facebook page if you have one. There is nothing like using their own services against them!

      Because I don't want to be scared to walk around the corner from the bus stop any more.

      Violence is terrible against anyone, so who is it helping if disturbing sexist images are broadcasted around freely? It's hard enough for a woman to recover from violence, let alone if there are images that could trigger them. This is a serious problem, thank you for helping with it.

      Male violence is the worst problem on earth.

      Violence against women is a basic human rights issue and images that trivialize this threaten social cohesion.

      This kind of material is unacceptable when it concerns race, religion etc, and Facebook needs to include sexism in their list of unacceptable posts. Violence against anyone is not a laughing matter. For women in violent situations, it is already hard enough to try and get out and seeing images like this will not help these women in anyway.
