Facebook is facing scathing criticism Down Under, after suspending multiple accounts for sharing the above photo of Aboriginal women performing a public ceremony. In a speech honoring International Women's Day, indigenous rights activist Celeste Liddle spoke about women of the central Australian Arrernte Aboriginal group, to which her family belongs, and their representation on the Internet.
Updated March 14, Facebook has suspended the profiles of people who shared an article about Aboriginal feminism, because it contains a photograph of two Indigenous women in traditional attire. Celeste Liddle, a feminist and freelance author, gave the keynote speech at the Queen Victoria Women's Centre's annual International Women's Day address, and a version of her speech was published by online publication New Matilda. When New Matilda published the speech, the outlet included a photograph of two women who were participating in a ceremony wearing traditional body paint and with bare chests.

In her talk, published in full at the New Matilda , Liddle describes being banned from Facebook four times for sharing a trailer for an Indigenous comedy show that featured images of topless desert women. Although her account has since been reinstated, her experience is another unacceptable example of inappropriate western values. Facebook was contacted for comment. But the campaign seems to sidestep cultural issues, rooted in nothing deeper than a marketing hashtag for a movie , and has attracted numerous celebrity women — most of them white. And we need to defy the idea that the only acceptable images of women are those selected to suit the male gaze, or that men or tech firms! Topics Facebook.
