UNITED STATES. Johnny Depp-Amber Heard trial - a verdict that marks end to the movement

"I'm even more disappointed by what this verdict means to other women. It is a setback. It challenges the idea of violence against women should not be taken seriously," Amber Heard stated in a statement following the announcement of the verdict against Johnny Depp in her defamation suit. Amber Heard was found guilty Wednesday night of defaming Johnny Depp. She was ordered to pay $15 million in damages. Her ex-husband was also guilty of making defamatory remarks. He must compensate her with two million dollars.

"It's an enormous defeat for society, it's killing the movement

However, this case showed a step backwards in terms of the treatment that was given to the accuser. Amber Heard was subject to unprecedented harassment via social media for several weeks. Many memes were relayed under the "witch" name.

"We have created a myth about the female victim. This myth is a lie. All women who don't fit the criteria are viewed as lying. Johnny Depp was simultaneously laughing, drawing,, and being celebrated as a much more outrageous person. Ursula Le Menn said that the difference in treatment was glaring in everyone's eyes. It is transparent misogyny.

The case reminds us of the need for the today.

What are the implications of this highly publicized trial in the case of domestic violence next? American media started to report information shortly after the verdict. It stated that several domestic violence victims wanted to withdraw their complaints and to reconsider their public declarations. This trial is a message for all victims, who will not be stopped from pressing charges. It has been an educational tool that has had a lasting impact on the fight against violence against females, rather than serving as a teaching tool. Is there any woman who wants to experience what Amber Heard experienced? asks Ursula Le Menn.

This case is universal because social networks don't have a border. Amber Heard is not a representative of women who have been victims of domestic violence. Victims need to be informed. They can get support since professionals are more aware of the Grenelle of violence. They believe us. Khadija Azougach encourages that we must talk about it. She recalls also that the trial was not about violence but about the words used and doesn't question the courts who have spoken in the past about the restraining orders and acts of violence.
