Criticism of Fifty Shades of Grey for glamourizing domestic violence continues. Closely linked is news that Papua New Guinea tops search engines for pornography, sparking debate on whether there is a correlation between pornography and erotica with violence against women.

The killing of a rape victim in Turkey has sparked protests and dialogue on violence against women in the country. One of the more interesting protests is a campaign by men wearing miniskirts, drawing attention to the issue and creating a powerful statement on being an ally.
