CARE Nor­way, a fem­i­nist or­gan­i­sa­tion, re­leased a pow­er­ful vi­ral video on Youtube dubbed “Dear Daddy". The five-minute poignant and emo­tion­ally-loaded video fol­lows young women from birth to adult­hood and uses a pow­er­ful nar­ra­tive to il­lus­trate the var­i­ous forms of sex­ual as­sault, do­mes­tic vi­o­lence and ev­ery­day sex­ism so many women ex­pe­ri­ence through­out their lives. It’s a bold and riv­et­ing com­men­tary on where sex­ism and vi­o­lence against women truly be­gins. It’s a chill­ing mes­sage about sex­ism from daugh­ters to their dads which ends with this sen­tence: “Dear Daddy, I will be born a girl. Please do ev­ery­thing you can so that won’t stay the great­est dan­ger of all.” The film has racked up more than five mil­lion views in Swe­den and Nor­way.
