White Ribbon Day

Today, Wednesday 25th November 2009 is White Ribbon Day - the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.

It is the start of a 16-day campaign that also includes Stop Domestic Violence Day on December 5 and World Human Rights Day on December 10.

White Ribbon Day is the biggest effort by men in partnership with women across the world to end men's violence against women.

White ribbons are worn on the day by men and the women as a way of speaking out against violence towards women.
