Claims close tie between objectifying and domestic violence

Italian house speaker slams sexy ads and TV stereotypes

Rome, May 16 - Italian House Speaker Laura Boldrini on Thursday said that there is a close tie between objectifying women in the media and violence against women on Thursday. "Italy is plastered with posters of scantily clad, flirtatious women. Everything is sold through women's bodies. On television, the models are the housewife or the half-naked woman. It is a short step from there to violence," Boldrini said at a convention in Rome on violence against women. "If women become objects, the message is clear. You can do what you want to an object," she added.
