TODAY Show host Lisa Wilkinson has levelled a passionate broadside at the 50 Shades of Grey phenomenon, calling it "domestic violence dressed up as erotica".
Wilkinson was unequivocal in her scathing review of the film, which depicts a BDSM relationship between a wealthy man and a naive, 19-year-old woman.

Ms Stott Despoja pointed out that every part of society — from the workplace, to schools, to corporations and governments — had a responsibility to be role models for both men and women, and that movies such “Fifty Shades of Grey … have done us no favours.”
“It is such rigid gender stereotyping that do men and women no favours.”
I am thankful for Lisa speaking up, and going against public opinion, on this important matter.
