Today marks International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. The 16 Days of Action span from the 25 November until 10 December.
During this time we ask men to wear a white ribbon, and pledge never to commit, excuse or remain silent about male violence against women: https://www.whiteribbon.org.uk/pledge/
Of course this issue is present all year round, but it is important to mark this period with a special effort to speak to family, friends and co-workers about why men must take a stand against violence towards women.
We are taking donations for White Ribbon and Cyfannol Women’s Aid at Torfaen Civic Centre reception over the next 16 days. White Ribbons are priced at a suggested donation of £1.00.
Please remember that advice on domestic abuse, sexual violence and violence against women can be found on the Cyfannol Women's Aid website - https://cyfannol.org.uk/
