White Ribbon Day

Today is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. According to the White Ribbon Website "The White Ribbon Campaign is the only national violence prevention campaign, and it is unique in that it aims to raise awareness among Australian men and boys about the roles they can play to prevent violence against women". In Australia alone, one in three women will be abused, or experience some form of assault in their lifetime.

The White Ribbon campaign is about change - changing actions and current attitudes, changing the silence surrounding violence toward women, and creating a future where violence against women is no longer exists.
