The News Minute | March 7, 2015 | 11:30 am IST The dress that took over the internet last week with people debating if it was blue and black or white and gold, has been put to use in a powerful campaign against domestic violence. The campaign which is sponsored by the South African branch of the Salvation Army, managed to redirect the hype over the dress to shed light on a social cause. South Africa faces a huge problem of domestic violence with some of the highest rates in the world.   The Salvation Army is present in 126 countries and runs charity shops, operates shelters for the homeless and provides disaster relief and humanitarian aid to developing countries. Is it so hard 2 see black & blue? 1 in 6 women are victims.#StopAbuseAgainstWomen#blackandblue #whiteandgold pic.twitter.com/HoYNXBQRIE — TheSalvationArmySA (@SalvationArmySA) March 6, 2015 Why is it so hard to see black&blue?#TheDress #StopAbuseAgainstWomen #TheDressIsBlueAndBlack #TheDressIsWhiteAndGold pic.twitter.com/CJGvXne3Hw — TheSalvationArmySA (@SalvationArmySA) March 6, 2015 Tweet Follow @thenewsminute
