It’s White Ribbon Day

The official website has a whole heap of good material, including a donation page, the link to their campaign for men to swear an oath never to commit, never to excuse, and never to remain silent about violence against women. Crucially, there is also a link for where to seek help.

Previous HAT posts about White Ribbon Day and the campaign to end violence against women:

  1. Helen: Violence by Numbers
  2. me: White Ribbon Day
  3. me: Whitewashing and White Ribbons

And here’s a post about domestic violence that I did for Finally, A Feminism 101 Blog.

Addendum Dec 5th: I just saw this powerful video from Amnesty International with Patrick Stewart talking about growing up with domestic violence from his father against his mother. So very, very powerful.

  1. Thanks for the links! I thought Andrew O’Keefe’s piece in the Age (as well as the accompanying cartoon) was really quite good. http://www.theage.com.au/opinion/society-and-culture/men-swear-to-change-20091124-jhau.html

  2. Have just added this fantastic speech from Patrick Stewart about growing up with domestic violence to the post. I know this post is two weeks old now, but it just seemed the most appropriate place to put it.
