Hartstikke leuk al die zwart wit foto’s op social media, maar dit is de reden er achter met de hashtag #ChallengeAccepted.
This challenge began in Turkey as a way to raise awareness of the high Femicide rate among Turkish women. People are grieving the deaths of these women who are victims of domestic abuse and trying to get the Turkish government attention! It’s so sad to see that the original meaning has entirely lost as the trend got bigger on social media! The original hashtags have also been dropped: #kadınaşiddetehayır and #istanbulsözleşmesiyaşatır While celebrating women is awesome and your b&w photos look beautiful, PLEASE don’t disregard the original meaning behind this trend. Share this message as much as possible. Let’s raise awareness instead of just setting a trend.
