Supporting White Ribbon Day - 23/11/12


The 25th November marks White Ribbon Day, also known as the UN International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. I joined Labour colleagues outside the Houses of Parliament in support of the campaign.

In the UK 45% of women have experienced some form of domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking and on average, two women in England and Wales are killed by a partner every week.

Throughout the year, the White Ribbon Campaign encourages men to undertake educational work in schools, workplaces, and communities, to change attitudes which can condone violence against women, to support women's organisations, and to raise money for organisations that oppose violence against women.
