This PSA is the NFL's latest attempt to address these concerns since the creation of a women-led “social responsibility” team.

The team, led by NFL Vice President of Community Affairs Anna Isaacson and three other domestic violence and sexual assault advisers, was formed to evaluate incidents of domestic violence and sexual assault within the league and educate players on these issues.

The PSA also addresses the public's attitude towards domestic violence and sexual assault survivors.

This particular statement addresses a reaction commonly faced by domestic violence survivors. Janay Rice faced similar criticism when she chose to defend her husband after his suspension.
