Women in Pakistan are rallying behind the hashtag, #TryBeatingMeLightly." It's in response to a proposed law that would allow men to hit their wives. A Pakistani photographer photographed a group of women and allowed them to tweet out the snaps along with their reactions. Activists say the social campaign effectively spotlights domestic violence in Pakistan and around the globe.
