Salvation Army using "The Dress" to address domestic violence

Posted: Updated:

The South African branch of the Salvation Army is using a viral phenomenon to address domestic violence.

They tweeted out a picture showing a model wearing a gold and white dress, with a caption saying "why is is so hard to see black an blue." The model in the picture has a black eye and a large bruise on her leg, and the text also says "the only illusion is if you think it was her choice. One in six women are victims of abuse. Stop abuse against women."

Millions debated about "the dress" last week, arguing that it was either black and blue or white and gold.
