Hi, Just started a petition on change.org, against eBay for their use of the term ‘wife beater’ to sell their tank tops. It’s an offensive and insensitive term that we should leave behind, and it would be a show of respect and solidarity to victims of gender-based violence if we no longer use it. Beginning with those who legitimise the term while selling the tops is a good start… all support welcomed!
