Erin Molan wants you to look closely at her face. See that dark mark beneath her eye, the other at the corner of her mouth?
They’re not bruises, as they might first appear. They’re words. Words like: stupid, fool, loner, go away, you don’t deserve me. Words that can hurt; even kill.
It’s all part of a domestic violence awareness campaign by Cosmopolitan Australia, highlighting the dangers of emotional and psychological domestic abuse.

Molan shared the campaign photograph on social media, and wrote: "Confronting... yes. Absolutely. But crucial... yes, and then some.
"IT HAS TO STOP. ENOUGH. Physical and emotional abuse kills and no one can afford to turn a blind eye ever."
The Footy Show host is one of several famous female faces who have lent themselves to the campaign, including actress Danielle Cormack, supermodel Robyn Lawley and former Bachelor winner Anna Heinrich.
