movie theater film reelSome women's groups are speaking out against the latest movie being released in the Fifty Shades trilogy.  

"Fifty Shades Darker," the sequel to "Fifty Shades of Grey," is being shown in theaters now as some women's groups are protesting "the abusive control and violence portrayed by the male lead character" in the film.

Haley Halverson, director of communications with the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, says her group as well as other organizations across the globe, spoke out against the first movie and now they are doing the same with this second release. 

She tells OneNewsNow they have set up a website at www.Fiftyshadesisabuse.com to sign a pledge to boycott the movie. 

But there are other ways to participate in the campaign.

"Instead of going to this film," she advises, "you can donate money to a domestic shelter, which are the kinds of places that the women in these kinds of relationships usually end up in real life."

Halverson calls the film's plot "insidious" because the message to women is they can "fix their abuser" by being submissive to his demands, which leads women to remain in dangerous relationships in real life.
