The White Ribbon Campaign is the largest effort in the world to include men in the movement to end violence against women. The campaign, which has been active for 20 years, now works in 60 countries and one aspect of it is to ask men to wear a white ribbon as a pledge to never commit, condone, or remain silent about violence against women.
UN Women’s “Say No – Unite to End Violence campaign’ is a global call to end the violence that up to 70% of women suffer during their lifetime. The idea behind the campaign is that actions taken, throughout the world to raise awareness of, raise funds to prevent, and campaign to change laws to stop, this issue will be logged online to show the force of engagement that exists. As I write, in March 2011, close to two million actions have been logged.
