White Ribbon Day

Posted by jerry on November 24th, 2005 — Posted in Journal

Today and tomorrow I will wear a white ribbon in honour of the campaign for the elimination of gender-based violence. 25 November has been designated UN International Day for the Elimination of violence against women. White Ribbon Day is the largest effort by men across the world, working in partnership with women, to end men’s violence against women.

White ribbons are worn on November 25 by men in countries and cultures across the world because violence against women is men’s problem. The White Ribbon Campaign is the first mass campaign by men against violence in the world.

It should of course be extended to all forms of domestic violence, in support of the vulnerable members of our community irrespective of gender or age.

Cheers
