Today is White Ribbon Day. Men are actively campaigning and committing themselves to this statement:
I pledge never to commit, condone, or remain silent about men’s violence against women in all its forms.
Restoring Dignity is a great resource for religious and non-religious people who want to learn more. It looks at different traditions and teachings.
Myth: Violence against women is religiously sanctioned.
FACT: No faith condones violence against women or the degradation of women’s dignity.
“Ever since I was a wee boy in the playground I’ve hated violence. Violence against anyone. But I’m particularly opposed to violence against women: It’s the action of a coward. I’m dead against it.” Brian Cox, Actor (from White Ribbon Campaign)
