BCI Censoring Trocaire's Campaign for Gender Equality
International Women's Day 2007
Indymedia.ie contributor Seamus writes:
At the most basic level, this is an act of censorship and is anti-women. This is made all the more visible given that tomorrow is International Women's Day, a day that, among other things, serves to highlight the radical inequality experienced by women globally.
Now, while Trocaire are a branch of one of the most anti-women organisations of the world, the Roman Catholic Church, they should be commended for thier campaign shift away from perpetuating the 'black baby' syndrome - the racialised representation of development in Irish society - and 'development as chairty' model of public relations.
For those not familair with Trocaire's advertisment please see:
p> To think that the BCI can stop this in its tracks says alot about the conservative, anti-women sentiment of a public willing to complain that the ad is 'too political', and an organisation willing to censor. Where were the BCI when the EU advertised on the airwaves regarding what they did for Ireland and where to get more information?
This is an act of censorship...
