Today is White Ribbon Day, the UN’s International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and men (and women who support the cause) can make a pledge to take action against violence towards women.
Although the campaign focuses on women victims, it must be remembered that domestic violence is a hidden and dangerous problem and that both men and women can be victims as well as perpetrators. It affects millions of people in the UK each year and all victims should be offered the same level of support and help.
Making a pledge is just one way of showing your support for bringing an end to domestic abuse. The White Ribbon UK website here outlines the ways in which you can do this.
