Belize Family Life Association condemns sharing of deceased woman’s partially-nude photo

Posted: Thursday, March 12, 2020. 1:49 pm CST.

By BBN Staff: The Belize Family Life Association (BFLA) has come out against the widespread sharing of a photograph of the late Carolyn Joan Arnold, 63, whose body was found in Ladyville earlier this week.

While media coverage used photos of Arnold in better times, the BFLA noted that a photo of her partially nude body was being circulated via social media and that the act amounted to a huge violation of her human rights even in death.

“…the publication of nude or partially nude photos of a deceased woman, or any picture that seeks to demean, violate, disrespect or deny a woman or girl of the dignity owed to her in life and death is an act of violence- gender-based violence, and violates her rights,” the BFLA said.

The organization also reminded that Belize is a signatory to various international treaties, conventions, and agreements that speak to the protection of human rights and the eradication of gender-based violence and called on civil society as well as the general public to do their part in eliminating all forms of violence against women and girls.
