This coming Saturday is White Ribbon Day
The White Ribbon CampaignUK is part of a global movement to put a stop to male violence against women and girls.
This is very much a MANS issue, and it is women who are disempowered, harassed and abused by the behaviours of men.
The White Ribbon UK website notes that ...
Men and boys have a crucial role to play in creating a culture where male violence, abuse and harassment against women and girls are simply seen as unacceptable. We support them to take a stand against gender violence in their workplaces, schools, communities and families.
The 25th November, the world marks International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, also known as White Ribbon Day. From then until the 10th December, we encourage everybody to take part in the 16 Days of Activism against gender-based violence.
Most men are not violent towards women, but many of us ignore the problem, or see it as something which doesn't have anything to do with us. We need to join women and women's organisations in taking action to end the problem.
You can take a stand against violence now and sign our personal pledge never to commit, condone or remain silent about men's violence against women by visiting the White Ribbon Campaign Website
