Description
A Brazilian model based in the Philippines recently posted on her Twitter and Instagram accounts saying that she was in an abusive relationship and was suffering from physical, sexual and emotional pain.
Philippine government officials and women's groups said they will support and help the model if she comes out and files a case against the alleged abuser.
Although the case did not transpire using technology to perpetuate VAW, this is a case of a woman using social media to express herself and cry for help.
