Gift Do Violence to Women?" brochure (ca. 1977)
The Boston branch of the organization Women Against Violence Against
Women formed in reaction to a billboard advertisement for the album
"Black and Blue" by the Rolling Stones, which showed a
woman bound, cut, and bruised, and apparently not unhappy about
it. This WAVAW brochure encourages consumers to boycott record companies
that utilize demeaning advertisements to sell music. From
the Women Against Violence Against Woman records.
