“I swear never to commit, excuse or remain silent about violence against women – this is my oath” This Quote is being sworn by 1000’s of Australian boys and men leading up to the international ‘ white ribbon day’. White ribbon day is all about campaigning to stop men’s violence against women by swearing the powerful and cavernous oath, 100’s of males that are leaders in our society, whether it be Sport, Music, or entertainment.
One in three women have reported experiencing physical or sexual violence at some time in their lives, therefore being a serious problem in our society that needs to be adhered to. While its costing the lives on many females it is also costing the Australian economy 13.6 billion annually.
White ribbon day will be held internationally Friday on the 25th of November. Please purchase a white ribbon in support of this day and be a part of a future without violence against women. If you have a friend, family member or know of someone who is a victim of domestic violence please inform them to contact MIDLAS on 9250 2123.
