White Ribbon Day (Thursday 25 November) is marked around the world as the largest global initiative to end male violence against women by calling on men to take action to make a difference.
Although domestic abuse affects people from all backgrounds and all characteristics, it still disproportionately affects women, with 71% of victims being female.
The campaign will run from 25th Nov – 10th Dec. Help us spread the message and join the pledge to never commit, excuse or remain silent about male violence against women. There’s no excuse for domestic abuse.
You can find out more from the official website White Ribbon UK
