One day? Everyday!

The International day for the elimination of Violence Against Women is the 25th November. White Ribbon Day. But in this fight against violence against women we must be active everyday. To swear as men never to commit an act of violence, never to condone an act of violence and to speak out against violence against women!

White Ribbon Foundation.

In Australia, one in three women will be assaulted or abused in her lifetime. These women are our mothers, our girlfriends, our wives, our daughters, our colleagues and our friends. How have we allowed this to occur?

Not only is it unacceptable for this violence to take place, it is unacceptable that we allow certain behaviours and attitudes to go unchallenged.
