Women’s Aid England and Wales issue statement on ‘Delilah’
Fri, 12th Dec 14
Eleri Butler, CEO of Welsh Women’s Aid and Polly Neate, CEO of Women’s Aid Federation of Engand said:
“We ask the Welsh Rugby Union not to actively promote singing the song ‘Delilah’ as many people sing this song and don’t realise what it’s about – it is a man singing about killing his female partner, and in England and Wales this happens to two real women every week. It’s a well known and popular song, but its message is nothing to celebrate.”
If you live in Wales you can phone the All Wales Domestic Abuse & Sexual Violence Helpline (freephone) on 0808 80 10 800. You will be able to speak personally to a professionally trained Helpline staff member.
