Women's Aid "The lockdown" by Engine

A chilling campaign from Women's Aid Federation of England highlights the increased dangers of domestic abuse during the coronavirus lockdown.

The ad shows haunting images of empty streets and public spaces across the UK while people stay at home. It ends with the line: "For thousands of women and children right now, home is anything but safe." 

Domestic-abuse charities around the world have reported an increase in incidents since lockdowns began, because abusers and their partners are forced to self-isolate together in close proximity.
