25 November 2021 marks the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and White Ribbon Day (WRD), and the 16 days to end violence against women that follow.
WRD are asking people in their communities, organisations and workplaces, to come together, and say ‘no’ to violence against women. #AllMenCan is the leading message this year and WRD want as many men as possible to think carefully and make the White Ribbon Promise to never commit, excuse or remain silent about male violence against women.
